A piece of architectural beauty that has the history of the Sunday during WWII when there was a packed congregation. During the service a Nazi bomb entered the roof of the church hitting a wall and landing "unexploded" in the nave.

Do buy a ticket for the church that includes entryto this shelter. It sits literally under the raised flights of steps leading to the church. Not all is available to walk through but enough to make this a poignant moment.

If you happen to be near or in Mosta, you should definitely pay the 2€ to see this beautiful church. It’s worth it, but I wouldn’t travel more than 30 minutes just to see it.

Yes, there is an entrance fee of €2. We made this fee so that we have employees to take care of the church during tourists visiting hours

There is public parking quite close by which can get congested. Failing that, on street parking is available. If you or one of your party is a blue badge holder, this makes things a lot easier.
