The photos you see do not capture the feeling of "wow" when you walk through the door.

They have a replica of the bomb and you can have your photograph taken next to it - a very short queue when we went there. If you're driving there is a car park next to it but... read more

They have a replica of the bomb and you can have your photograph taken next to it - a very short queue when we went there. If you're driving there is a car park next to it but I've never quite worked out where the entrance is! If you're happy to walk (and let's face it the sun will be... More

Did not go inside, but from the outside, this place looks stunning. The architecture is amazing and this is a breathtaking structure.

The Mosta Church is well worth a visit; a place of absolute beauty. The Church comes with a lucky escape from an unexploded bomb back in April 1942 (take a look at the pictures; it was an amazing escape for almost 300 people) The dome is a masterpiece in itself. We were lucky enough to find the Church open in-between... More

Jaw dropping dome when seen up close re- architecture and miracle bomb story complete with bomb replica entertaining with Postcard shop inside. Other towns in Malta have dome churches but not as BIG as this 1. The interior was the usual..too shiny for me, park far away and walk up to it to avoid one way system + contributing too... More

Well worth a visit just to see the size of the dome to this church.Again the money spent on religion in the old days is apparent.Note that for some reason the church closes between 12 and 3 or at least did on the day we visited.Even then they started closing at 11.50

What a place to visit, brilliant. The architecture inside and outside of the church is stunning. Add to this that a WW2 bomb came through the dome and fell into a congregation of three hundred people and didn't explode, which they class as a miracle. No one was injured and the bomb just rolled down the aisle, there is a... More

Mosta Rotunda is a wonderful church. It is a huge space, yet with an atmosphere of peace and acceptance. The decoration is sumptuous yet never garish. Loved our visit.
