The Mysterium Fidei Museum, which has been closed and hidden for over 400 years, has just been opened up as a museum for the public to enjoy!
The museum comprises St Catherine’s Monastery and the Underground Complex and offers ‘an immersive experience that will take you to a world within a world; into the underground complex lying beneath St. Catherine’s Monastery in Valletta.’
‘Monastic nuns who chose to lock themselves from the outside world, till death and beyond it. Immerse yourself into everyday life at the monastery and the fascinating secrets hidden within these walls. Travel through time from the era of the Knights of St. John, to this day.’
An audio tour of the complex is also available as visitors visit rooms used for work, prayer, restraint and the ‘sleep of death’, the official website explains.
Located only three minutes away on foot from the Grandmaster’s Palace, Mysterium Fidei Monastery secretly lies in the paved part of St. Christopher Street between Republic Street and Strait Street.
