Such a beautiful Serene church. What I loved most, aside from its stunning facade and interior, is the fact that it was full of locals coming and going just like tourists. They made me feel so welcoming. Such a warm and reverend place. Gorgeous and innate, venerable and full of history and character. A lovely, lovely church.

Inside, the darkness and ornate Baroque decor add to an air of reverence, irrespective of your religion. Malta is full of beautiful churches and this certainly does not disappoint... 更多
