Abstract: Petra Bianchi has a look at the magnificent floor of St. John's Co-Cathedral, the burial ground of the Knights. Spread over the grand floor of St.John’s Co-Cathedral in Valletta, the rich designs, colours, textures and exquisite veining of marble ledger stones create the effect of a painting. The church is lavishly paved with the finely crafted tombstones of high-ranking Knights of the Order of St. John, who lived and died in Malta during the Order’s reign over the island from 16th to the 18th century.
