La Domus is the imposing residence of the Roman Catholic priesthood in Victoria. At the time of its construction, the building was an outstanding architectural achievement.
It was built in 1934 to house Swiss missionaries who were sent to the Diocese of Port Victoria at the time. The magnificent two-storey granite rock building even includes an aqueduct that connects it to the Water supplied from a nearby artesian well.
In the 1960s, a dozen Capuchin monks lived there. Today, only three priests live in La Domus , and many of the rooms are used as administrative offices. It stands in a quiet corner of the town and is a reminder of the time when there was no shortage of priests to spread the word of God in the islands.
