The Wignacourt Museum is now open after an extensive restoration project. The complex includes St Paul's Grotto - the cradle of Christianity in Malta. On site are rock-cut rooms which provided shelter to families during the Second World War. These lead to an intricate labyrinth of catacombs which date back to Roman times. Upstairs is the Church of St Publius, and the beautiful Baroque building inaugurated by Grand Master Alof de Wignacourt for the chaplains of the Knights of St John, who looked after the Grotto. It now houses a magnificent collection of paintings, silver, vestments and other unique artefacts.
