Ruins of St. Paul's Cathedral 4.5 rating

  Cultural Attractions

The city's most famous landmark and is regarded as the greatest monument to Christianity in the East. The only thing left of the Church of Mater Dei, built in the 1600s but burnt down in 1835, is the imposing facade with its Biblical statues and relief being described as a 'sermon in stone' and a 'Bible for the poor'. Nearby are the remains of the St Paul's College. Behind the facade is the Museum of Sacred Art and Crypt which occupies the chancel of the church, displaying archaeological excavations of the site and also exhibits and paintings on early Christian life in the East. The crypt contains the remains of martyrs of Christians killed in the 17th century.
