The Co-Cathedral of St. John, Malta

The Baroque Cathedral of St. John on Malta, built by the Knights of St. John of the Hospital when they ruled the islands, has one of the world's most wonderful floors. It is entirely composed of the tombstones of knights, each pieced together from multi-colored marble. Now the cathedral's web site has a digital floor plan that allows you to call up and inspect every tomb.
