The Malta skyline

Malta skyline at Cottonera - 4 domes visible in one photo
Growing up in Malta, the skyline was always flat, with buildings as high as two floors. Nowadays the skyline has completely changed as high risers and even skyscrapers are dominating every where you look. The only exception is where churches are concerned. They have always been the major landmarks in every town and village. 
Lourdes church at Mgarr and Ghajnsielem parish church in Gozo
And these accompanying photos I took a few yeas ago can testify to this statement. As much as skyscrapers are tarnishing the Maltese landscape, yet the baroque churches and red-painted domes will always be an irreplaceable scene that is typical of Catholic Malta.
