I am not a religious person but the beauty of this building will take your breath away. The fine detail is to admire , let alone the sight of the dome.

It is just very hard to understand how, in the '80s, the inhabitants of the small rural village of Mosta could have the courage and the faith to build such a majestic temple. Definitely, a "must see" for all visitors to Malta.

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.
