At Mellieha Parish Church, 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.

Mellieha Parish Church reviews
Beautiful church on a beautiful island. My favorite in Malta. Very cosy and tidy, yet modern interior, with no excessive ornaments. It was lovely to spend a few minutes in this church.
Every year I visit Malta, I pass by this church while travelling but never before have I walked in. I had the chance to do that this year and it was a nice experience. It is not one of my favorite churches when it comes to interior but the location offers a really nice view.
