Mosta is a town in the Northern Region of Malta. With stimated population of 21000, it is the third most populous town in Malta. Being in the centre of Malta, Mosta is a very busy hub for all traffic moving up and down the country.
Mosta has been inhabited since pre-history. Dolmens at San Filep Valley, in the limits of Mosta, are primary evidence of this. Other historic places include the Victoria Lines and several medieval chapels, one being the Speranza Chapel, which is situated at the Speranza Valley. It was built in the 18th century, between 1760 and 1761. Here one also finds Cumbo Tower, a fortified residence.
The most famous building in Mosta is the Rotunda, a large Basilica named St Marija Assunta Basilica, which has the third largest unsupported dome in the world. The church is dedicated to the Assumption. On 9 April 1942, the church was nearly destroyed during World War II. A bomb hit the dome of the church but failed to explode. The detonator was removed and a replica bomb is now displayed as a memorial. The church took 27 years to complete and is a major attraction in the area.
Mosta celebrates the feast of the Assumption every 15 August.
