Tas-Salvatur in Gozo

This must remind you of The Redeemer in Rio. Michael, our cab driver, told us the story how this mountain Tal-Merzuq was once feared to be a volcanic one. To set this in context, Mt. Etna is just next door in Sicily. The locals built this statue of The Risen Jesus to keep the volcano at peace.
