Pietà, Malta

Focus on Ta' Braxia Cemetery: In this cemetery, anyone of any faith could be buried. It was laid out by the British, and it broke the power of the Roman Catholic church over who could be buried where. It was opened in 1867, and has been enlarged since then. But, space for new burials ran out long ago. [2009]
