The entrance is on a main road out of Mellieha with steep steps down into the small chapel. This was a very calming experience and it was amazing to read all the messages left on the walls.

This is worth seeing. So peaceful and plenty to look at. There’s loads inside you can look at but can not take pics or film. There is a little gift shop.

We had stopped at an hotel down the hill but you can see this church from near enough everywhere in Mellieha as it is at the top of a hill overlooking the hotels below. It is not as bad as you think walking there up...More

Whilst in Mellieha visit as it is worth it. We visited and found the interior to be stunning. We are not particularly religious but were glad we visited. The architecture is stunning.

We looked around after the service on Sunday and it is well worth a look if you like ornate churches

If you are in Mellieha, do have a little wonder up to the church & square. Worthwhile planning a holiday around Mellieha's festive celebrations starting from 7th September. There are fireworks are organised around the church, absolutely awsome.
