St. John's Cathedral with its Caravaggio paintings will leave us stunned with its amazing interior decoration. The central square with the Palazzo dei Knights (Old Parliament) and the residence of the Magistrates during the omnipotence of the Order (1530-1798), the recently renovated closed market (Il Suq tal Belt) with the agricultural products of the Maltese land, are just some of the places we will visit.
