Situated near the top of Republic Street, the busy main road in Valletta, the Church of St Francis is worth a visit both for its artistic quality and for the classical music concerts held frequently in its baroque oratory. Built in 1598 by the Franciscans, it was entirely rebuilt in 1681 by the Italian Grand Master Gregorio Carafa, whose coat of arms in Maltese stone embellishes the church facade.
