Malta – The Mosta Dome

The Rotunda of Mosta or the Mosta Dome, is a Roman Catholic parish church and is one of my favorite places to go to when I go to Malta. It also has an amazing story. During World War II the Luftwaffe dropped a 500kg bomb which pierced the dome, smashed into masonry and clattered to the stone floor. It did not explode. The shocked parishioners were ushered out of the Church to safety and no-one was hurt.
