Żabbar Parish Church

Constructed between 1641 and 1696, the church follows a cruciform plan with three bay naves. It has two tall bell towers with a triangular spire and a large dome. It’s interior was completed in 1723, and was decorated with an altarpiece by Alesia Erardi.

The church underwent radical alteration in 1738, when its facade was redesigned in the Baroque style by Giovanni Bonavia. During the French Blockade of 1798-1800, the dome was hit by a cannonball and had to be rebuilt in 1801. It was once again reconstructed in 1926, and side panels were added to the building.

A model of architectural ingenuity, the magnificent Żabbar Church is well worth popping into!
