The Parish Church of Mellieha, Mellieha

4.6
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.

  • Unfortunately, we could not visit it. It is open at certain times. Very steep to get there starting at feet of the db seabank. Do not hesitate to take the bus to €1.50, it's really worth. The outside is beautiful as well as the small square in front.
