Mosta – Festa Santa Maria – (Ref: pfm130165)

This time of year it is only appropriate to post a panoramic image celebrating the feast of St.Mary.

The Rotunda, designed by George Grognet de Vasse, a French citizen resident in Mosta, took 27 years to complete.   On April 9, 1942, during an afternoon air-raid, a 200 kg Luftwaffe bomb pierced the dome...
