Sacred Heart Church

Sacred Heart Church is a beautiful Gothic structure from the 1800s that has been lovingly looked after and is found in the upper part of the old town. It is located on one of the busy narrow roads which lead to the Nature Reserve, Upper Rock. The exterior of the building is imposing but beautiful, with a slight resemblance to the Notre Dame is Paris but only has one tower as the family who generously built it seemingly ran out of money during construction. The inside is peaceful and beautiful and the little courtyard outside has a little garden with a grotto devoted to the Virgin Mary, specifically Our Lady of Lourdes. Amongst the parish priests of this church was Charles Caruana who went on to be the Roman Catholic Bishop of Gibraltar between 1998 and 2010.
