Tomb of Antonio Lores of Grampourdam, detail

Detail of the tomb of Cavalier Antonio Lores of Grampourdam. The floor of the church of St John the Baptist in Valletta (Malta) consists of around four hundred tombstones, inlaid with multicoloured marble. In addition to artistic merit, there is also literary merit in that the history of the knights of the Hospitaller order is written on them.
