If you have Photoshop - Edit - Transform - Perspective will fix the tipping in feel of this photo. Is this one of the Knights Templar(sp?) churchs?

Hi Suzan

The Church is dedicated to St Mary of Graces and as far as I know was not built by Knights of St Johnn but by the villagers in the 19th Centuary. But their are many arcitecture buildings built by the Knights of st John for example ther Capital City Valletta and many fortifications around the Islands of Malta in the Mediterenean.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"These Knights where similar to the Templar and had several wars against the Muslims the most famous took place in 1565 .Thousands of Turks assulted Malta by sea and after months of siege the Knights of St John and the Maltese where finally victorious on the 8th September which is still celebrated till this day.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"The Knights where made up of Christians from all over Europe of the time and ruled Malta from the 16th centuary till late in the eighteenth centuary.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Below is a pic of Fort St Angelo which proved inpenetrable to the Muslim Turks and could not defeat the order of St John and had to retreat after losing a huge proportion of thier forces.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Sorry for the quality but it was taken on a very dull day last Febuary.

style="BACKGROUND-COLOR: #000000"Bye
