The Church in Mosta

The Church of the Assumption, in Mosta.

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.
