Again, taken from Wikipedia:

"The National Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of Ta' Pinu (Maltese: Santwarju tal-Madonna ta' Pinu) is a Roman Catholic parish church and minor basilica located some 700 metres (2,300 ft) from the village of Għarb on the island of Gozo, the sister island of Malta. The church is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin of Ta' Pinu. The basilica is located in open countryside which allows visitors to enjoy beautiful views of the area."

An unfortunate tale accompanies this picture. This photo was taken just 7 minutes after a fireworks factory exploded on the opposite end of the valley on top of which Ta' Pinu resides. Four people lost their lives on the day. May they rest in peace.

A very interesting and informative foreword support by a rather beautifully composed photograph.
