The Church of Our Lady of Damascus is a Catholic church in Valletta, in Malta, observing the Byzantine rite. It is also called Id-Damaxxena.

The original church was built upon the request of Giovanni Calamia to house the icon of Our Lady of Damascus brought over from Rhodes by the Knights of St John when they were expelled from the island by the Ottoman Empire. By 1580 the church was finished. In 1587 the Icon of Our Lady of Damascus was solemnly transferred from Vittoriosa to the new church.
