Mosta

Online since: 09. April 2013

Mosta Rotunda

Mosta remains a typical Maltese town (15,000 inhabitants). Very little tourism can be seen there! The town is very cosy and only on the main street, Constitution Street (Triq il-Kostituzzjoni), can traffic be quite hectic. Most of the shops, restaurants and cafés are located along this street. The centre of the town is the square in front of the dome church.

The third largest is situated in Xewkija on the neighbouring island of Gozo. It was built between 1833 and 1862 by local villagers. The entire church and the arch roof were erected in Maltese lime stone. The church demonstrates an astonishing stability. The stones carry themselves and barely any cement was used in the construction.

During World War II, a bomb fell through the arch roof during a service. Miraculously, it didn’t explode and there were no casualties or wounded. The bomb can still be seen in the vestry.

Ta Marija in Constitution Street (Triq il-Kostituzzjoni) offers Maltese delicacies with an excellent service, beautiful ambience and various entertainment programmes. The restaurant was honoured as best restaurant for Maltese cuisine in 2005 and 2006.
