St. John’s Co-Cathedral in Valletta is one of the most famous sites in Malta and there is usually candlelit carol singing in the build up to Christmas. Other baroque parish churches across the Islands are just as awe-inspiring during advent. Their interiors are decked out in papal crimson and altars are adorned with flowers.
