  • Other Churches

  • Chapel of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

    In 1875 the civil authorities planned the building of a new town which was to be called Albert Town in honour of Albert, the Prince Consort of Queen Victoria. The plan did not succeed but a number of families went to live near the church of the Sacred Heart, which had been built for the new town. In 1951 the church was given to the Capuchin friars of Marsa.
