List of Churches in Malta

In the small island state of Malta the church or chapel is a very common feature of the landscape. Many churches in Malta dominate the skyline and the domes and steeples can usually be seen from across the island. You can usually find the centre of a town or village by driving towards the parish church although many towns and village cores usually feature two or more churches and chapels.

On the islands of Malta and Gozo, which are two separate dioceses there are a total of 359 churches (313 in Malta and 46 in Gozo). Of these 78 are parishes (63 in Malta and 15 in Gozo) and 6 are national parishes.

In Malta every locality has its parish church, apart from two or three small localities. There are also localities that have more than one parish church, like Sliema and Birkirkara which have four parishes each.This page does not list all of these, but lists the parishes and a sample or other Maltese churches.
