Abstract: Meta fl-1653 Cosmana Navarra iddecidiet li minn flusha tibni il-knisja parrokkjali gdida iddedicata lil San Pawl hija qabdet lil arkitett taljan Francesco Buonamici sabiex ifassal il-pjanti ghal din il-knisja barokka. Jidher izda, li minhabba li l-bini tal-knisja ta' San Pawl kien ghadu ghaddej meta, fi-1659 Buonamici halla il-gzira, ix-xoghol tal-bicca ta' fuq tal-kampnar u l-koppla saru fuq disinn tal-arkitett Malti Lorenzo Gafa li sa mill-bidu kien fdat bit-tmexxija tal-bini tal-knisja kollha. Jidher izda Ii Gafa kellu jiehu iddecizjoni li jhott l-istess lanterna minhabba li dehru mill-ewwel xi xquq fil-koppla rizultat tal-piz li din kienet qed titfa' 'l isfel. Il-koppla baqghet minghajr lanterna sall-1919, sakemm il-kappillan Carmelo Sammut sema' l-ghajta tar-Rabtin u tqabbad il-perit Carmeo Micallef biex terga tinbena l-lanterna fuq il-koppla.
