Parish Church of the Assumption

In 1610, Fr Stiefnu Buttigieg commissioned architect Tumas Dingli to design a new church for the town of Attard. At the time, the existing church had proved to be too small and a larger one was needed. Dingli was in charge of all the works, including the sculpture of the church. 

The Parish Church of St Mary is a jewel of Renaissance art and has a Latin cross plan.
