Peregrinatio Sancti Pauli Apostoli 60AD commences in Selmun proceeding towards a promontary with a view of St. Paul’s Islands. From there the walk continues towards St. Paul’s Bay and the Għajn Rażul Fountain and the San Pawl Tal-Ħġejjeġ church in St. Paul’s Bay, San Pawl Milqi, Burmarrad, the Paleo-Christian Catacombs in Salini and onward to Naxxar – a village from Christian antiquity as evidenced from its motto, “Prior Credidi” (the first to believe) with its church of St Paul Shipwreck in the area known as San Pawl tat-Targa. From there we continue through Mosta and Wied il-Ghasel past the chapel dedicated to one of Christianity’s earliest saints and first known Christian hermit from the 3rd century bearing his name, Paul of Thebes (Coptic: Ⲁⲃⲃⲁ Ⲡⲁⲩⲗⲉ; Greek: Παῦλος ὁ Θηβαῖος; Latin: Paulus Eremita). In Malta he is known as Paul the Hermit.

Through Mosta the walk would continue through Wied il-Qlejja and Mtarfa to Mdina, home to the Metropolitan Cathedral of St. Paul in Mdina. The walk continues to St. Paul’s Grotto in Rabat where it ends.
