In Malta, you will find some of the most stunningly beautiful Churches in the world. Many have large, decorated domes like these.

 

The Order of the Knights of St John were based in Malta for manny years as they waged war on the Crusades. Their influence is felt throughout Malta, not only in magnificent buildings, palazzos, and decorative pieces but also in innovations such as well organised and staffed hospitals
