The most important Christian catacombs outside of Rome
Today, the intricate, extensive Catacombs of Malta are the largest archaeological evidence of Early Christianity in Malta. In fact, these systems of catacombs are among the largest ones of all Christian traditions, second only to the ones found in Rome. Indeed, built between the third and eight centuries, St. Paul’s Catacombs alone sprawl across an area of over 22,000 square feet.
