St. Johns Co-Cathedral is located in Valletta, Malta, was built by the Knights of Malta between 1573 and 1578, having been commissioned in 1572 by Grand Master Jean de la Cassière as the conventual church of the Order of the Knights Hospitaller of St John, known as the Knights of Malta. The Church was designed by the Maltese military architect Glormu Cassar who designed several of the more prominent buildings in Valletta.

St John's co-cathedral is beautiful and for those interested in art the church also possesses a painting by Caravaggio it depicts St Jerome

From Buffalo As An Architectural Museum website
http://buffaloah.com/

Our Lady of Victory Bacilica (technically in Lakawana - borders on the south of Buffalo)










Saint Pauls Cathedral - Buffalo
Designed by Richard Upjohn









St Gerrards Church
The church has abandoned this building - they want to dismantle it and send it to Atlanta - to be rebuilt in the middle of a suburban PARKING LOT!!!

Buffalo has hundreds of these wonderful churches, and a lot of them are abandoned and going to rot...











St Josephs Old Cathedral - demolished!!!
This used to be the "central" cathedral in Buffalo - St Paul's above is not "it" as a result of the demolition
