I am Maltese and really proud to have my country Island possessing this wonderful architectural piece. Hundreds of thousands of tourists enter and exit it throughout the year admiring in awe the architectural treasures, the richness in history as well as the most beautiful paintings ever to adorn this Cathedral. A trip to Malta is all the poorer with no visit to this central architectural piece. I say this even if I were not Maltese to dispel any doubt of what I am saying on the prejudiced basis of being Maltese!
