Saint Paul in Malta & the Early Christian Era

  • Printed or mobile voucher accepted

In the year 60 AD a big storm hit the Maltese
Islands which brought a galley with 47 persons
aboard in one of the beautiful bays of Malta. Among the crew there
was the Apostle Paul known as Saulus from Tarcus. Accompanying
the apostle Paul was Luke, a medical doctor by profession and
profecient in writing. St. Luke the Evangelist, wrote an interesting
description about the shipwreck of St. Paul on the islands, where he
described the local people as barbarians as they did not speak Latin
or Greek. Saint Paul healed many locals including Publius’ father,
later also baptising him in the town of Melita.
During the tour, the guide will first take you to Rabat, thus
visiting St. Paul’s Grotto where the Apostle Paul lived for three
months. A walk through the narrow winding streets of Rabat would
give a taste about the early medieval architecture. You will then visit
St. Paul’s Cathedral in Mdina, where you can enjoy the splendour of
the artistic works inside the temple and following the history about
the role of St. Publius as the first bishop ordained by Apostle Paul.
Finally the bus will drive you to St. Paul’s Bay where the shipwreck
occured in 60 AD. An interesting walk on the garigue will bring you
closer to the historical events in the early christian era after the
apostle Paul.
It is highly recommended to wear good walking shoes. Free time
for lunch will be given around 1300 hrs.
