This is a side view of a Gothic Church found at the Addolorata Cemetery in Malta -

“There are places we drive past that we prefer not look that closely at, given the fear that our thoughts may lead us to dwell on something we find hard to accept – Death. Instead, we settle for a quick sign of the cross or murmur a short prayer for the soul of a loved one that might be resting there. Even upon visiting a cemetery, one doesn’t get the desire to look around and appreciate the architecture, as one would do when visiting a palazzo or museum. But this should not diminish or remove in anyway the architectural splendour that some of our local cemeteries are clothed in. One of these being the Addolorata Cemetery in Paola, Malta which is a hillside ‘city’ rising majestically to a pinnacle crowned by a gothic church.”

‘Gothic Church’ placed 4th out of 12 in the challenge ‘Parts of Maltese Churches’ in the All Things Maltese Group
