St Paul’s Anglican Pro-Cathedral was built between 1839 and 1844 on the initiative of the Queen Dowager Adelaide, widow of King William IV and the aunt of Queen Victoria. The Pro-Cathedral is dedicated to Saint Paul, considered to be the spiritual father of the Maltese nation. Its unique and historic identity is complementary to and in harmony with the Archdiocese of Malta, walking together in Faith. It is the architectural masterpiece of William Scamp. He took over the commission when the project faced serious structural issues, and ensured it was successfully completed. The building is designed to a Neo-Classical architectural style with a grand temple-front portico with Ionic columns. An array of eight Corinthian columns embellish its interior.
