Description:
This is St John's Co-Cathedral in Valletta, the capital city of the Mediterranean island of Malta. The cathedral dates from 1577 and outwardly is does not appear exceptional. However once you enter and view the Nave, as seen here it is striking. Don't just take my word for it - no less than celebrated Scottish judge and novelist Sir Walter Scott said so when he visited (after an arduous sea journey) in 1831. Also in the Cathedral are 9 richly-decorated chapels, mostly dedicated to patron saints. The Co-Cathedral is just one of several interesting and impressive places to visit in the relatively small island, which is one of my favourite destinations to visit in all of Europe. Much more information on the Co-Cathedral, and it's history can be found here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_John%27s_Co-Cathedral
