This is the famous church, in Mosta. Built between 1833 and 1860, it is said to have been inspired by the Pantheon in Rome. During World War II, a bomb fell through the dome but did not explode. The Maltese people thought of this as a miracle. The now harmless bomb rests in the sacristy, always ready for photo opportunities.

I presently live in Venice Florida but was born on the island of Malta. I have relatives there and visit quite often. I am in the process of writing a travelogue and memoir about my visits and memories of Malta. I would like to use my blog to show the many photos I have taken and the beautiful sights that I have seen in Malta.
