The island of domes and steeples

I would say there are over one thousand churches in Malta, between parishes, chapels and other sanctuaries that were built over the past 600 years. Most of the churches are Baroque in style with two steeples and a large dome. Just about every skyline in Malta features one of these churches, as you can see from these photos I took over the past 5 years. As picturesque as these churches are, inside is even more spectacular with paintings, tapestries and beautiful ecclesiastical artifacts. You will see the inside of some of these churches tomorrow.
