Mosta is a town in the north of Malta, best known for its beautiful 18th century Mosta Rotunda church, aka Mosta Dome.
Unless you have zero interest in Malta’s history and culture, you’ll be hard pressed to visit Malta and not hear about this iconic church.
Mosta Rotunda Church
Mosta Ratunda’s most famous event took place during World War 2.
Malta was bombed severely during the war, it took a good thrashing for such a small nation.
A hefty 500kg German bomb shell crashed through the church dome before bouncing across the church floor three times, as a 300 strong congregation sat with bated breath during mass.
It really is a miracle that it didn’t land on anyone’s head.
Miraculously, the bomb didn’t go off, and the event is heralded as a miracle from God to this day.
Churches to Malta is like ice to the arctic, they don’t do churches by halves, each church if grand, majestic and architecturally awe inspiring.
