The lights reflected on the Church at night make it such a stunning monument. Very close to the hotel that we stayed and from the rooftop you could watch the reflection of the Church and lights in the reflection in the water. So pretty!

You cannot omit it if you stay in St Julian's. Looks very nice at night and it is very easy to find.
