Have you ever asked yourself how many churches there are in Malta?

In Malta and Gozo every locality has its own parish church representing the main saint, but this is not all, some localities have between another 2 to 3 and some localities even up to 4 churches representing different saints, these consist of Cathedrals, minor basilicas, parish churches/chapels, making the Maltese beliefs – roman catholic.

In Malta there is a total of 313 churches.

In Gozo there is a total of 46 churches.

Yes you are reading it right, 359 on our small islands, the Maltese people are devoted to church and their saint.

In Mosta there is one of the biggest domes in Europe, in fact it is classified as the third biggest dome in Europe!

Over 100 feasts are celebrated in most of the villages around the Maltese islands every year!

Each church celebrates the feast of their saint, this is mostly done between April to September and spread over a week of celebration to celebrate their saint. This will include processions with brass bands that will walk along the streets of the village along with the statue of the saint, on a Saturday the eve of the feast, there will be the most awaited fireworks display, as part of celebrations to the saint.

On the Sunday the day of the feast, celebrations will start as early as 8am, with people having fun and enjoying themselves whilst they walk along the streets in the morning in a procession with the band. In the evening another procession will gather, that will walk along the streets of the village this time together with the statue of the saint where people will also walk along to celebrate their saint.

We at uPhotoMalta will be happy to assist you in enjoying a local feast while capturing the moment, send us an email…. and we will plan your local feast for you.
