Rabat, Malta

St. Paul's Church, Rabat, Malta

When St. Paul was shipwrecked on Malta it is said he lived in the grotto that now stands underneath the church which bears his name in Rabat, in the centre of Malta. Whether there is any real truth to this is uncertain, but it seems likely he preached from this grotto.

The church, in reality a fairly standard Baroque Maltese church, dates to the 17th Century and was built over the grotto.
