Upon its completion in 1860, the old church inside was demolished. Dedicated to Our Lady of the Assumption, the building is a paragon of architectural finery, with its most notable feature being its awesome Rotunda Dome. Said to be the third-largest in the world, it stands a whopping 52 metres high with an outside diameter of 57 metres.

The church was nearly destroyed in 1942 when a 200kg bomb fell through the dome without exploding. Miraculously, none of the 300 people attending mass inside were hurt and the bomb was successfully detonated.

As notable for its history as for its splendour, the marvellous Mosta Dome is certainly not to be missed!
