Carmelite Priory Museum - Malta
Directions to Carmelite Priory Museum
The Carmelite Church and Priory Museum is the only monastery in Malta that has opened its doors to welcome regular visitors. This initiative is the end product of intensive restoration that have brought this seventeenth century priory back to its former glory. Constructed around an idyllic courtyard, the highlight of the place is undoubtedly the Refectory where the friars would congregate for communal meals. Other areas provide further insight into the everyday communal life of the Carmelite friars.
The museum is connected to the Carmelite Church from behind the altar. Among the most notable paintings in the church are the two works in the large main chapels executed by Michele Bellanti in the mid-nineteenth century and also six works by Giuseppe Calì, with the Virgin of Sorrows being a very poignant and devotional work.
