All Malta Sights

Our Local Experts say:

With its strategic position in the centre of the Mediterranean, Malta has an incredibly colourful past. It is today a magnet for history buffs as well as visitors willing to learn the story behind such suggestive buildings and locations.

Arabs, Knights, French and English have all laid claim to the Maltese islands over the past centuries and have all left a significant mark on the culture and geography of Malta and its people... as did the in no small way the Roman Catholic church. The most evocative legacy is certainly that left by the Knights of St John with the medieval built towns of Valletta, Mdina and the Three Cities. However, churches, palazzos, theatres, gardens, war rooms and many other historical buildings built in later years are also today still standing as witnesses to Malta's chequered history. The past decade or so has seen a strong resurgence of awareness and pride in the Maltese to preserve these historical gems and it must be said that a very good job is being done by both the public and private sector to restoreand promotethese priceless treasures in Malta and Gozo.
