The Legend of 'Speranza' Chapel, Mosta
1. Follow the text below as you watch the video.
In the year 1750, a family from Mosta was harvesting their fields in Burmarrad.
Unexpectedly, they were attacked by the Turks.
They ran back to the centre of the town.
Exhausted, the twenty year-old girl stopped in a cave nearby.
She prayed to the Virgin Mary for salvation.
The Turks searched high-and-low to find her but they found nothing but a cave full of cobwebs.
They assumed she wouldn't have been able to get in without breaking the cobwebs.
When they left she built a church in the exact place where she had found shelter.
