EVENTS: The Old Parish Church of Żejtun – A Structural Analysis

DSC_7378On the 7th April, the eve of Saint Gregory’s feast, Wirt iz-Zejtun held a presentation entitled “Knisja Antika, Binja Antika” (“Old Church, old Building”) at the old Parish Church of Saint Catherine, also  known as Saint Gregory’s Church.

The lecture was delivered by architect Karen Abela, who presented the research she carried out for her thesis on the structure of the Church.  In fact, this Church is one of the oldest public buildings in Malta and originated in medieval times. Its construction and layout are of great architectural significance within the Maltese context.

The lecture was very well attended and an interesting discussion followed the presentation.
