Saint John co-cathedral’s exceptional marbled floor is covered by nearly 400 tombstones of Knights and officers of the Order. On each tombstone, one sees the crest, coat-of-arms and epitaph of each Knight. The earliest grave dates back to 1606, just 25 years after the church was opened. The interior of the church one of the finest examples of high Baroque architecture in Europe, boasting impressive painted ceilings, carved walls and numerous side altars. In fact, the church itself is considered one the world’s great cathedrals.
