Carmelite Church MDINA

By Edcat55
The Church was built between 1660 and 1675 and is believed to have been designed by the French military engineer Mederico Blondel des Croisettes (1628-1698). It is one of the most important centralized churches in Maltese Baroque architecture and was the first church to be built in Malta to an elliptical plan.

The Carmelite Church

The Carmelite Church has always played an important role in the city of Mdina. During the French occupation the church was despoiled of its silver in July 1798.

Lovely image Edwin.
I remember visiting many such churches when we visited Malta years ago. It amazed me that they were simply open to walk in and view.
The respect shown by the people was so different to home, where the contents would have been stolen or vandalised. I do hope it's still the same.

Another magnificently extravagant church interior. I can only wonder at the vast amounts of money that were spent on churches in Malta, at least they are open for the people to enjoy unlike the wealth selfishly stashed away by today's super rich.
