Camino Mariae Melitensis (2 days) (60km walk | Registration required) | Level: Mod | Meeting Place: Cars in Mellieha. Transport to departure point provided | P258
We will be walking the Camino Mariae Melitensis 1432AD (in the footsteps of King Alfonso of Aragon) from Castrum Maris, Birgu via Mdina to the Mellieha Sanctuary. This is a 60km walk and will take place on 24th and 25th February 2024.
The event is over 2 days and we will be sleeping at the historic St. Peter’s Monastery in Mdina. If the number of pilgrims exceeds the accommodation available we’ll identify additional alternative accommodation in Rabat.
This is the first time that this 2-day mini cammino is being held. It also serves as a great training experience for those who intend to walk caminos in Spain or elsewhere.
We’ll park our cars in Mellieha (close to the Sanctuary / church) and depart by coach to Birgu at 07:30 a.m. The intention is to start our walk from outside Castrum Maris (Fort St, Angelo) at 08:30 a.m. and – on the first day – walk to Rabat / Mdina. After sleeping in Mdina / Rabat, we continue on our 2nd day of hiking to the Sanctuary of Our Lady in Mellieha.
The contribution of Euros 48/person covers the
- coach from Mellieha to Birgu,
- accommodation on a bed and simple breakfast basis (accommodation will provide beds with linen/blankets and pillows and most rooms are en-suite). Pilgrims are expected to carry a towel and toiletries.
- A credencial for all those walking the Camino Mariae Melitensis 1432AD and a Testimonium for all those who complete it.
