The Parish Church of Mellieha, Mellieha
(4.5/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
At The Parish Church of Mellieha, admire the architecture and location, hear more about the story behind its creation, or pray in a peaceful setting. The church was built between 1881 and 1898 by the local peasants, who dreamed of a new church to grace their town. They took stone from a local quarry and transported it all themselves. During the period of 1920 to 1940, the interior was improved and a dome and many belfries were added. The small church sits on a hill overlooking Mellieha Bay and offers great views any time of day. Walk around back to check out the old cemetery. Services are held throughout the week and are open to the public, so check the mass schedule on the website.

  • Came across this church by accident. Nice external looking church and lovely interior as with most of the churches on Malta. Large exhibition on the Popes visit to the church 
  • I got the impression that it was a very valued and lacking attractiveness. I had no way to access it but the inner courtyard is really very pretty and serene

  • Very imposing building set high above the Maltese countryside and overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

  • Very nice Chuch, Piazza and Sanctuary. The Sanctuary is vere special for the locals as a myth states that a grace is granted to those who pray to the Our Lady Shrine in The Sanctuary 'Especially those who ask for a pregnancy'. The Scenery is also very nice. Next to the church there is also a WW2 shelter open for viewing.
  • A beautiful church.
