Photographer's Note

from Bugibba we also went on foot (9 km) to Mellieha. It is quite a large village in the northern part of the island. The town overlooks Mellieħa Bay, which includes Għadira Bay, the largest sandy beach in Malta. According to the Acts of the Apostles, St. Paul was shipwrecked in Malta in around 60 AD, possibly in the nearby St. Paul's Bay. According to local tradition, St. Luke, who was accompanying St. Paul, came across one of Mellieħa's caves and painted the figure of Our Lady on the rock face. In 409 AD, the cave was consecrated as a church, and it is now known as the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Mellieħa.
There is beautiful church on the hill with the view of the bay, unfortunately it was closed.
It seems the inhabitants like cats. I found this stair-mural interesting, another one I will upload in Workshop.

Another stairs.
