The Oratory of the Immaculate Conception at the Jesuits’ Church restored back to its former glory
Their sacristy is also currently being restored.
The restoration project of the Oratory of the Immaculate Conception at the Jesuits' Church in Valletta has finally been completed and it’s looking more stunning than ever!
The Oratory of the Immaculate Conception was built in the first half of the 17th century to provide a space for prayer for a confraternity established by the Knights of St John.
Although the architect of the Oratory is unknown, some attribute it to Francesco Buonamici, the Italian Baroque architect.
“The restoration of this baroque gem allows visitors to experience it in its original splendour”, the rector of the Jesuit Church, Dr Nicholas Doublet expressed.
During the past few months, the roof, dome, couplets on the chapels, and bell tower together with the church’s facades on Triq il-Maerkanti, Triq L-Arcissqof and Triq San Pawl were also restored. The sacristy is undergoing work as well and is expected to be finished in the coming weeks.
