Most older localities have a rich heritage that goes through the ages, and many boast beautiful buildings from the era of the Romans, the Knights or the British eras. Old and new co-exist, with characteristic village cores giving way to more modern peripheries, and sixty-eight Local Councils ensure the constant up-keep and embellishment of their respective locality.
