A Rich History
No one really knows when this chapel was built. However, Pope Gregory XII did visit first visit in in the 1500s. During this time, Pope Gregory was engaging in condemning and demolishing small chapels like this on the island. But Ta Pinu Sanctuary Gozo was a bit different. Legend has it that when the first man tried to knock down the stone wall, his arm was broken. Everyone took it as a sign from God. Because of this, Ta Pinu Sanctuary Gozo was saved as a church. In the 1600s it was remodeled, and again in the 1920s. Services are still held there.
