In St John's Square was build between 1573 and 1578 by Maltese architect Girolamo Cassar. When you step over its threshold, the interior amazed you with its dazzling beauty. The marble floor is covered with multicoloured marble tombstones where 400 knights are buried. Each is adomed with the coat of arms of its aristocratic occupant, along with symbols reminding onlookers of the inevitability of death. The walls are intricately carved with flowers and garlands, whilist the vaulted ceilings are splendidly painted with frescos by Mattia Preti. The Cathedral's treasures include a magnificent painting of St John the Baptist by Caravaggio as well as a series of beautiful tapestries with designs by Ruben and Poussin.
