Church of Our Lady of Liesse
This church has a highly ornate façade with elongated panels separated by clustered pilasters in the Corinthian order. The side wings are splayed and have two sets of blank frames to enhance the blank walls.
The main portal consists of a door with heavy ornamentation such as a cartouche, a segmental rounded pediment and an oval light window. Above the window is a highly decorative coat of arms with a mantle.
The central bay is crowned by a broken rounded pediment, from the centre of which rises a square paneled centerpiece with short pilasters on the ends, a relief of the symbol of martyrdom at its centre, and a triangular pediment above. The church was damaged during the World War II and part of the façade and dome were repaired in the late 1940s.
The church is centrally planned and has a ribbed dome over a circular space with a deep apse for the altar. There are also two side altars and a sacristy and ancillary rooms on the rear. The belfry was added later by Francesco Zammit probably sometime in the early 19th century.
Mepa scheduled the church of Liesse as a Grade 1 national monument as per Government Notice number 276/08 in the Government Gazette dated March 28.
