Retracing the Footsteps of St. Paul in Malta (Based in St Julian’s)

Malta, perched in the Mediterranean Sea just south of Sicily has a rich history and a turbulent past. Its Megalithic Temples are the world’s oldest buildings, pre-dating the pyramids by thousands of years. During the week you will discover its intriguing landscape full of historic ruins, Baroque churches, regal palaces, UNESCO World heritage sites and atmospheric old towns. St. Paul spent 3 months in Malta when the ship carrying him to Rome as a prisoner went aground in Malta and thus Christianity flourished here.
