The catacombs of Saint Agatha in Malta take us back to the early years of Christianity and to the earlier years of burials in the Mediterranean. The tombs are clammy because of the humidity and the atmosphere is a surreal mix of the guided tour and a visit to the underworld. The catacombs and caves have been much improved in recent years as they become a tourist venue on the island. However, that means more people!
