When the World War II broke out II broke out were crucial in order to saves the lives of people. The shelters consist of about 50 rooms and circa 350 people used to come down and take refuge here during air raids. The government was in charge of providing the people of Rabat, as well as other refugees who came here from all over the island, with the main corridors of the shelters. Two of these corridors can be seen in this area.
The area of catacombs is a small part of a labyrinth of 3rd-century AD subterranean tombs. These hypogea form part of the Roman necropolis.
It is possible to visit a large number of underground burial chambers, including St Paul’s Grotto. Burials used to take place outside the city walls for hygienic reasons, and the Roman city of Melite used to extend to the area where St Paul’s Grotto is found. Here one can get a very good idea of the different tombs used at the time.
We have set up a separate page on the St. Agatha catacombs and St Paul’s Catacombs.
