There are some twenty five churches in Valletta. During the patron’s feast these churches are richly decorated with damask wall coverings and silver candelabras. On the feast days, streets are decorated with colourful statues of angels and saint, lights and decorated cloth banners. Band marches and outdoor concerts are held days before the procession. These festivities culminate in an extravagant display of fireworks that can generally be seen from miles away.
