Collection: San Lawrenz

We are happy to announce our launch of our collection .Inspired by th locality of San Lawrenz Collection.San Lawrenz is a charming traditional village in western Gozo just inland of the unusual geological attractions of Dwejra Bay.

It was established as a parish on 15 March 1893. Before this date, the area was known as Ta’ Ċangura, and as such its existence can be traced back to before the tragic Siege of Gozo in 1551 that saw most of the population enslaved by the Ottoman Turks.

Until it was declared a parish in its own right, it formed part of the neighborhood of l-Għarb. However, the people of San Lawrenz decided they wanted a separate community and their own church. The foundation stone for this new church was laid and consecrated in 1886 with a relic of Saint Lawrence placed carefully beneath it. Every villager participated with great enthusiasm in the building of the church.
