  Mosta Dome
by steventilly

The church at Mosta is one of Malta's most visited sites. The church is huge - the dome is claimed to be the third largest in the world but apart from its beauty its main claim to fame is "the bomb". In 1942, during a service, three german bombs fell on the church. Two bounced off the dome and the third passed through it and landed in the church without exploding. A replica of the UXB can be seen in the church.
We got to Mosta by taking the bus 86 from Bugibba to Mdina. Mosta is on this route, so we stopped off on the way back.
