Malta - Part II

While in Malta we rented a car and set off to explore Mosta, Mdina, and Hagar Qim. Mosta is within a half-hour drive of Valletta and has a church with a spectacular dome. During WW II the church dome was pierced by a bomb, but thankfully the bomb did not go off as their were 300 parishioners inside at the time.

Mdina is a hill-top fortified town that has been a center of defence in Malta for more than a thousand years. Hagar Qim (adge-ar eem) is a megalithic temple located on the South coast of Malta that predates Stonehenge in England.
