A superb and convenient place to test the Maltese waters, a visit to Balluta bay is highly recommended!
St Patrick’s Church
St. Patrick’s Church is a Roman Catholic Church within the Parish of ‘St. Gregory the Great’, in Sliema.
It is administered by the Salesian Fathers who are also responsible for the ‘St. Patrick’s School’ for boys.
The Church has been giving a liturgical and sacramental service ever since its open.
Built in 1657 to protect St Julian’s Bay from approaching enemy ships, the magnificent Sliema Tower is the fifth watchtower built under the reign of Grandmaster de Redin. Nearly 400 years later, it remains one of the most prominent features of the breathtaking Sliema Promenade, and is a highlight of any seaside stroll!
Today, Sliema Tower serves as a bustling restaurant, and is the ideal place to sit and enjoy the stunning Sliema seascape!
Church Of Jesus Of Nazareth
Located on the charming Strand in Sliema, the majestic Jesus of Nazareth Parish Church is one of the first sights to greet those entering the harbour by sea. As one of the town’s four parishes, it is an architectural masterpiece and has a history dating back nearly 150 years.
As the community grew, so did their needs, and they sought permission to build a larger church. Though this was not granted, soon after their death, their descendants decided to build one on their property.
Worth popping into if visiting Sliema, magnificent Jesus of Nazareth is an ecclesiastical gem!
