Incantato Performance Venue: St. George’s Basilica, Ta’ Pinu, in Gozo

Incantato Tours is proud to present this great venue: St. George’s Basilica, Ta’ Pinu, in Gozo.

The basilica was built in a neo-romantic style which means that the designer rejected or abandoned the use of the devices of avant-garde modernism and followed an older tradition. This is a national shrine and a center of pilgrimages for both the Gozitans and the Maltese as it is told on several accounts that the voice of Mary has been heard from inside. The present church was started in 1920 and consecrated in 1931.
