The capital of Malta is called Valletta which is the smallest European Capital city, was founded in 1565 by the order of St John. It was used as a refuge for knights and soldiers from the crusades. Valletta sits on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea with the old city walls being a prominent feature. Valletta is covered in Baroque architecture and one of the finest examples is Saint John’s Cathedral. The cathedral has a painted ceiling and side walls depicting the life of Saint John the Baptist however the main reason travellers come to the cathedral is due to its housing of Caravaggio’s painting ‘Beheading of St. John the Baptist’.
