Immaculate Conception Chapel

Immaculate Conception Chapel. Situated at the end of the Marfa Ridge, Mellieha, Malta. The former 19th century chapel was completely rebuilt in the 1960s after the land the original stood on collapsed into the sea. It is thought that the old chapel was built as a votive thanks to Our Lady by a fisherman who had survived a tragic ordeal at sea. He was the sole survivor when a boat with several fishermen on board capsized. For years, the old chapel served as a landmark to all fishermen out at sea.
