Tradition claims the Mdina cathedral is built on is the very same place where governor Publius met Saint Paul right after his shipwreck. Indeed, archaeologists have found the remains of a typical Roman domus (a palace-like house) in the crypt of the cathedral. Even though it is virtually impossible to claim that this was in fact Publius’ own house, the finding still somehow supports what tradition has always believed; namely, that the cathedral stands where the palace that back then belonged to Saint Publius himself once stood.
