Reasons for trip

This is the small church at the bottom end of the square in Nadur. We couldn’t find any information about it, so went into the butcher’s shop opposite to ask them. We were told it was called the Sacred Heart of Jesus (Sacre Coeur) and it had been built by a wealthy family. It is looked after by two elderly ladies who open and shut the church.

It is a nice little church with a small red dome and plain facade. Inside is a single nave with small transepts with altars on the end walls. The cream painted walls have flat pillars with gold Corinthian tops. There are two small arches between the pillars on either side of the nave with gold decoration around them and turquoise and gold underneath. There is a decorative frieze around the chancel and transepts, which have painted ceilings. There have been problems with the nave ceiling as there is a false wooden ceiling across the nave and the base of the dome.

There was a small mass altar. Behind is a large high altar with a painting above in a gilded frame and a plain glass window above. There is a small side altar in the nave and small statues in glass cases in the side transepts. At the back is a small open metal work balcony above the main door with the organ.

We liked the church but felt, unlike most of the other churches in Gozo, there wasn’t much money for maintenance.
