Description

St George’s Basilica, historically known as San Ġorġ tal-Ħaġar, rises at the heart of Il-Ħaġar, the prehistoric walled settlement and later Punic-Roman town, in the ancient quarter of Victoria. A Walk around this area gives the sensation that little has changed since the Middle Ages and a visit to the basilica, rebuilt in 1678, is bound to be a memorable one. Adorned in rich Italian marble and boasting a lavishly painted ceiling and gilded plasterwork, with fine canvases and statuary, a Renaissance-style altar, and magnificent bronze portals in contemporary art, ‘the golden church of Gozo’ represents inspiration, beauty, and craftsmanship on an outstanding scale.
