Chapel of the Blessed Virgin 'Tal-Mirakli'
The church, which is within the limits of the parish of Lija, is not far away from the road which from Attard leads to Mosta, and is a very well-known sanctuary. The present church was built in 1664 and dedicated in 1787. Tradition holds that the image of the Virgin venerated in the church shed a tear when a severe earthquake hit the island. Marriages may be celebrated in the church. Dedication date - 23 December 1787
