Ħal Għaxaq

  • Since 1511 at Ħal Ghaxaq there was a church dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary into heaven. When Ħal Ghaxaq became a parish in 1626, the people decided to built a new church which was ready by 1655; eighty years later the present church was built.

  • Church of Christ the Redeemer

    The church was built in 1852 on the site of a wayside shrine dedicated to Christ the Redeemer erected in 1807 by a certain Mikelang Zammit who had escaped death when his cab overturned. Work on this church began in 1852 on the initiative of Rev Joseph Demicoli and was completed in 1859. Since then, this church enjoys great veneration from people all over the island. Marriages may be celebrated in the church.
