Sant’ Agatha

Sant’ Agatha. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

Today’s post follows nicely from last week’s throwback, with the second chapel I visited on a walk starting from Żurrieq. This one is dedicated to St Agatha, and can be found in an area known as Bubaqra. From what I can understand, it is a fairly old chapel (at least 16th century), but one that has seen many alterations over the years, as it cycled between use and disuse. The portico is a fairly recent addition (~1900), as is the room to the side of the chapel. As is often the case, those who would like to know more about this chapel can consult Kappelli Maltin (in Maltese).

I found myself rather constrained with respect to viewpoints, as the chapel sits on a rather narrow road. Having only the smaller camera with me, I couldn’t try an ultra wide angle view from the direct front, so I went with an oblique view and a more normal perspective.
