A steep footpath climbs the 116m-high rock above Lindos to reach the beautifully preserved Acropolis. First walled in the 6th century BC, the clifftop is now enclosed by battlements constructed by the Knights of St John. Once within, you’re confronted by stunning ancient remains that include a Temple to Athena Lindia and a 20-columned Hellenistic stoa. Silhouetted against the deep blue sky, the stark white columns are dazzling, while the long-range coastal views are out of this world.

Saint John’s Co-Cathedral in Valletta is an outstanding baroque style cathedral built in the 16th century in honor of the Knights of St. John who ruled Malta. The Oratory contains the largest and only signed masterpiece by the artist Caravaggio who lived and painted in Malta for a time.

St. John's Co-Cathedral: Don't be fooled by its plain facade, if you're ever in Valletta this church is not to be missed! Lavishly decked out in the Baroque style it is absolutely breathtaking! The mosaic tiles on the floor mark actual tombs of some of the most important Knights of St. John. Mind. Blown. #valletta #knightsofstjohn #ifitsnotbaroquedontfixit

Today, we celebrate the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross ✝️ We celebrate God's greatest work: his salvific death on the cross and his resurrection, defeating death and opening the doors to Heaven.

Today, the Reliquary of the True Cross can be found at St John's Co-Cathedral, on the Altar.
The Reliquary is from the late 16th Century.

The front side of the cross shows the four evangelical symbols and two angels with passion tools. The back side, with lower reliefs, betrays Romanesque influences. Christ occupies the place of honour at the crossing of the longer of the two lateral beams.
The stem and the pedestal were added later.
