Brief description:

Located in St. Paul’s Bay, St. Paul’s Shipwreck Church is located along the waterfront.. The church is also known as St. Paul’s Bonfire Church and commemorates the site where the shipwreck survivors, including Paul, swam ashore and a bonfire was built for them by the locals.. The 14th century Church was rebuilt after being destroyed during World War II. It has 3 paintings depicting scenes of St Paul's shipwreck, attributed to Cassarino although others attribute them to Lionello Spada, both disciples of Caravaggio. The Collegial Chapter entrusted the running of this church to the parish of St. Paul's Bay in 2008
