St. Agatha's Crypt, Catacombs & Museum, Rabat

3.9
#2 of 11 in Historic Sites in Rabat
Explore the ancient underground system of St. Agatha's Crypt, Catacombs & Museum, the earliest and largest archeological site with evidence of Christianity in Malta. Take a tour through a series of interconnected cemeteries dating back to Roman times, where you can see well-preserved frescoes and even skeletons. Don't leave before viewing the history museum above ground, where collections of fossils, pottery, statues, religious items, and coins are displayed. Keep in mind the catacombs tour includes dark and small spaces, and claustrophobic visitors might not be comfortable. Photos are not allowed in the tombs. Plan my day in Rabat using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

The museum itself is located on the 2nd floor and is interesting to fans of minerals-the collection of the latter here is very happy. The rest of the exposition here is happy with the ' motley '-there are items and church appointments, and pictures and even coins! -In general ' gawk ' You can wait to visit the catacombs themselves, but no more!) The catacombs themselves, honestly...
