The Knight’s former Conventual Church, built in just five years and embellished over the span of over two hundred years, was gradually transformed into a spectacular work of art. No expense was spared in creating this masterpiece, as the Knights commissioned top artists and sculptors of the day. The austere façade gives no clue of what lies inside. St. John’s Co- Cathedral is a church like no other, a church of awesome beauty coupled with an interesting and unique history. In the Oratory we will see Caravaggio’s Beheading of St. John the Baptist.
This 3 hours+ walking tour starts with a guided walk of Valletta which will take you to Valletta’s main landmarks and beyond. The tour concludes with a guided visit of St. John’s, giving you the possibility of staying on in the church. Entrance tickets are not included, they can be bought on the day.
