"Xewkija - Church Of St John The Baptist" Top 5 Page for this destination Xewkija - Church Of St John The Baptist Tip by steventilly

by steventilly

The churches dome is the tallest in Malta and is 6m taller than St Paul's in London. The internal volume of the dome is almost as large as that of St Peter's in Rome - such grand aspirations for such a small-town church.
It was built by public subscription and and also by public labour and was begun in 1951. Take a look, go inside and go to the top of the belltower. It's all simply marvellous!
