ST. JOHN'S CO-CATHEDRAL, MALTA
In an effort to rival the magnificent cathedrals in Rome, the Knights of Malta built the Baroque beauty in the 16th century as the centerpiece of the fortified capital city of Valletta. Admire Caravaggio’s painting, “The Beheading of St. John the Baptist,” and watch where you step—inlaid marble tombstones of the knights of the Order of Malta tile the floor.

Wikipedia: A co-cathedral is a cathedral church which shares the function of being a bishop's seat, or cathedra, with another cathedral, often in another city (usually a former see, anchor city of the metropolitan area or the civil capital). ... These two dioceses were each named for both cities that served as bishop's seats.

And that is only a side chapel.

YVW, Jerry. I found and added a little more captioned info on the interior. . . plus wikipedia's description of the term 'co-cathedral' which also piqued my curiosity.

@JayneH Sumptuous! Thanks for introducing me to this wonderfully intricate interior and a new church label. Until now I had not heard the term co-cathedral.

Magnificent.
