The Order of the Knights of St John of Jerusalem, of Rhodes and of Malta, who came to Malta inbuilt this magnificent temple in the new city Valletta soon after the Great Siege of and dedicated it to their patron saint John the Baptist.

The sober and robust exterior holds within a unique and intriguing expression of Baroque art. Malta's Baroque Churches Birkirkara's St Helen's parish church Whoever visits my home country of Malta will always be impressed by four things: the chaos in the traffic system, the warm hot summer months, the friendliness of the people and the beautiful Baroque churches that figure in every imaginable skyline.

The most outstanding of these churches was designed by Lorenzo Gafà; one of the most influential architects in the development of Baroque in Malta. Baroque Valletta The Mosta Dome is perhaps the most impressive church in Malta, with its’ massive rotunda, that is the third largest in the world.

The story goes that Malta has enough churches to visit a different one every day of the year. This is very nearly true and the concentration of churches in Gozo is just as dense.

This church was found in Lisbon and was designed by architect Joao Antunes. By 18th century architects from the northern part of Portugal had adopted the concept of the Italian Baroque.

St John’s Conventual Church became a Cathedral when Napoleon expelled the Order of St John from Malta in and it was raised to a status equal to that of St Paul’s Cathedral in Mdina – the official seat of the Archbishop of Malta – by a papal decree ofhence the term ‘co-cathedral’.
