St. Paul's Shipwreck is an interesting little church on an interesting little street. I use the word street generously. Throughout Valletta there are many such "streets" that are steps that just happen to have shops, restaurants and residences.

Unless you are looking for this church, you will miss it. Pretty on the inside, but dark on the inside. Looks like it is in the middle of renovation, which is wonderful. Tells the story of St. Paul.

This church needs help and renovation but is well worth a stop. Each section is a separate chapel and the wrist bone and pillar of Paul are in the church. Not a far walk off the main streets.

Finding CSPS might not be so easy without a good street map. It does not stand out much from neighbouring buildings. In fact the entrance is in a small side street. Once you have found it and gone inside, you will find a very peaceful...More
