Parish Church of St. Catherine

This majestic parish church was built between 1692 and 1720, according to the design of Lorenzo Gafà, one of Malta’s foremost architects. Żejtun parish church is considered by many as his masterpiece. It is an imposing edifice, with an attractive dome, Doric and Ionic pilasters, and massive cornices all round.


The people of Żejtun were among the best town builders in Malta. Michael Cachia was an excellent military engineer and Angelo Gatt constructed the world renowned Mosta Dome. Both hailed from Żejtun. Various works of art abound both in the Żejtun Parish Church and in its museum. Each year the inhabitants take pride in organising, with great pomp and splendour, the Feast of St Catherine on the third Sunday of June.
