Catacombs are human made passageways used as a burial place. There are many Catacombs around the world including Australia, Egypt, Peru, Philippines, US and many countries in Europe. As you know Malta was invaded by many rulers including the Romans. Under the Romans, Maltese Christians buried their dead in Catacombs. There are 100s of catacombs in Malta but only 2 are open to the public. We visited St. Paul’s Catacombs in Rabat (town in Malta) which is a part of a large cemetery. It was quite overwhelming to visit these catacombs. Some areas were really dark and scary. These catacombs were built outside the city walls since the Romans did not allow the burial to happen within the city.
