Where one town end on Malta, the next one begins. In this case we're now in Floriana.

Helm belonging to a member of the order of Saint John - probably dating to the 17th-18th century.

Now on display at Grandmaster's Palace in Valletta (in what was once the stables).

The top of Saint Publius parish church in Floriana, Malta. (Also known as Floriana Parish Church.)

The church has a long building history, it was begun in 1733 and completed in 1768. But already in 1771 the work on rebuilding the church (starting with the façade) began. Additional building periods came in 1856-1861 and 1884-1892. And then the church got severely damaged by bombings during the Second World War (in March and April 1942 - killing 16 people). The church was reopened after this in 1944 and after the the war the church was properly repaired, a work finished in the end of the 1950s. The work on the interior of the church actually wasn't finished until the end of the 1990s.

The façade of the church is now in Neoclassical style.

(Thanks to Wikipedia for all the dates!)

One of the most fascinating aspects of Malta is its ancient history (and I mean really ancient). They left behind magnificent temples, but also figurines and other small pieces of what we could call art (we really don't know how the people that made them viewed them, and there is really no use speculating). This little head, and its fellow 'head' dates to the Maltese Temple period, 3600-2500 B.C. Of course we do not know if this is the likeness of a real person or the portrait of some deity, but a face of someone, that it is.

Head(s?) on display at The National Museum of Archaeology, Valletta, Malta (it's not a very big museum, but well worth a visit).
