Malta churches - the outside

St Publius church at twilight
Maltese baroque churches are as spectacular on the outside as they are on the inside. Especially in the summer festa season, when their facade is decorated with hundreds of colored light bulbs, and the result is just fascinating, as these two photos can testify. They are of the same church seen yesterday, that of St Publius in Floriana. The facade is usually lit for an entire week, as celebrations, Masses, vespers, marches, fireworks and other attractions are held in just about every parish throughout the summer season. St Publius's feast incidentally is one of the earliest, in mid-spring, close to the last Sunday of April.
The same church a little later in the evening
