VALLETTA, MALTA - 2 November 2013: Freelance artist Leslie Child from Leeds, UK, works on a watercolor landscape in front of St. John's Co-Cathedral in Valletta, Malta, on November 2nd 2013.
Valleta was named after Jean Parisot de Valette of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, who succeeded in defending the island from an Ottoman invasion in 1565, known as the Siege of Malta. The city was founded immediately after the end of the Siege of Malta to fortify the Order's position in Malta and bind the Knights to the island.
