Christian Pilgrimages In Malta
The history of Malta is a long and colourful one dating back to the dawn of civilisation. From the dawn of ages, the island was considered sacred and its inhabitants always searched and worshiped the divine.
St.Paul was the first Christian to set foot on Malta and it changed the course of nation’s history. With more than 365 churches, and many times that number of chapels, spread around the Maltese archipelago, the islands are an open museum of the Christian faith.
