St Paul’s Catacombs Rabat

AX Construction was entrusted with the construction of a new visitor centre and restoration works at the Catacombs. Excavations in an adjacent field used for the construction of the centre contained Punic remains which are older than the catacombs themselves, dating back to the early days of Christendom. Embellishment and restoration works included a further 22 catacombs which were previously not open for public viewing. The visiting centre was inaugurated in 2015.

AX Construction handled all the above and belowground works on St Paul’s Catacombs, including the construction of the Visitors’ Centre, restoration works on the catacombs and the pedestrian access.

St Paul’s Catacombs is an archeological museum found in Rabat, holding some of the most significant features of Malta’s early Christianity archeology. The catacombs themselves are part of a large cemetery found within Mdina and Rabat, previously known as the ancient Roman city of Melite.
