Actually, it's almost on the waterfront, so 99% chance you'll come by this church so why not take a look. there are not many attractions in Marsaxlokk. It's nothing spectacular, just nice.

Set in the idyllic fishermen’s village, the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Pompei is always well decorated with its neo-baroque architecture. The paintings inside are simply suberb. One can also visit the little Museum to get a glimpse of the quaint village’s history and deep...More

Tried to pop in one Sunday morning for a quick look. There was a service on and the church was packed. In a prominent place in the harbour.
