Mosta Travel Guide: 71 reviews and 220 photos

I was on holiday in Malta during the Holy Week. Malta is a very religious country. Good Friday is one of the most important religious holidays. So, on Good Friday, it is like life in Malta stands still. Almost everything (shops, museums) is closed, except for some tourist shops.
So the best thing we could do that Friday was to visit a procession.
We decided to go to Mosta (also after advice of Anne and Doreen)

Pros and Cons

    Om kerken zit Malta zeker niet verlegen. Een aantal zijn toch wel speciaal, waaronder die van Mosta. Indrukwekkende processiebeelden.

    Het heeft toch wel iets, zo'n processie. In een heel ver verleden heb ik zelf ook nog in de processie in onze parochie meegelopen ...

    They certainly like their churches to be big in Malta. The Xewkija dome is the most impressive I have seen!
