Inside Malta's churches

Inside Birkirkara's parish church dedicated to Saint Helen
Yesterday I showed you what a church in Malta looks like from the outside. Here are some photos of the magnificence of these same churches when they are fully decorated for their titular Saint’s feast, usually in the summer months. One can obviously see the elaborate chandeliers, the tapestry on the walls, besides the painting in ceilings, apses and walls, as well as at the altars. Most of the altars are also decorated with candles, as well as a set of statues representing the apostles, sometimes 12, on other occasions just 6, and in this particular church, all gilded in gold. Make sure to click once on each photo to enlarge.
