cathedral museum hall pageThe Cathedral Museum staircase which leads to the piano nobile is considered to be one of the most beautiful in Malta, and has even been compared with the monumental scale regie seen in eighteenth-century Sicilian palazzi. However, if the staircase is considered a masterpiece, the annexe and the chapel itself form the climax of the whole. Known as the Vestments Hall, this huge space, decorated with a painted frieze, on the left of the piano nobile, leads to a magnificent small octagonal chapel. The lateral exit of this chapel, dedicated to the Annunciation, takes us to the first of three large dormitories which have been transformed into galleries to display paintings and other works of art.
