This view from the waterfront shows the dome of the church Our Lady of Mount Carmel. Easily the most outstanding feature of Valletta's skyline is the dome of the Carmelite Church. It was Valletta's first church, built in 1570, but has been damaged many times since. The greatest damage came during World War 2, and Axis bombs forced the reconstruction of the magnificent 62 meter high dome. It was reconstructed just a bit higher than the nearby of St Paul's Anglican Cathedral’s spire. The bell tower, with spire, of St Pauls is shown on the right.
