The Central Region
Religion in its various manifestations has permeated Maltese life since time immemorial. The religious heritage of the Central Region reflects this reality to the full. The purely spiritual merges with the more popular and secular. Churches are a feast for the eyes and the other senses; they incorporate artistic exhibitions of beauty, colour, inspiration, devotion and ritual. Each church is a unique experience of the cultural and spiritual; of the human and divine; of the elaborate and the simple. Indeed every church in the Region manifests its own story, written by its parishioners, by the commissioned artists, by the clergy who service it. Each church is a compendium of the religious life of the locality as manifested in the acts of devotion and ritual, of art and architecture, of tradition and innovation, and of the sacred and the profane. This website provides the platform to virtually visit and wonder our heritage.
