The church is wide and there is plenty of space, seating is quiet comfortable, the organisation of the mass acceptable and the priest did a very good homily. Not the first time I visited this church and was always satisfied.

We were here during the week long celebration feast. It was very moving being right there instead of just seeing it from the Luna hotel. Anyone visiting Mellieha has got to go and see this place during the day and night.

Worth visiting if you like baroque or if you want a cool break from the heat! Probably not much else if you're not into the former.

We missed the festival this year but we highly recommended a visit early September to enjoy the sights and get to see inside the church properly

A beautiful church full of culture, with surrounding war shelters which were used during the 2nd world war. Views onto Mellieha bay offer wonderful photo opportunities. Walking distance to Mellieha village where shopping needs can be met. Well worth a trip.
