Things to See in Malta

share

Malta has lots to offer the most demanding history and culture buffs. The Baroque capital, Valletta, which boasts an iconic skyline adorned with colourful balconies and church steeples, is brimming with cultural and historical sites. UNESCO regards this city as one of the most densely concentrated historical areas in the world. It’s no wonder that it’s listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Medieval Mdina is captivating with its quiet, narrow streets and imposing bastions that look out over most of Malta. Valletta and Mdina, along with the famed three cities of Birgu (aka Vittoriosa), Isla (Senglea), and Bormla (Cospicua) serve as giant architectural museums. The entire island is a history museum that displays artefacts dating back to prehistoric times with its ancient temples and burial sites. And cultural monuments represent the island’s fascinating past, from Byzantine and Roman through to the Baroque time of the Knights of St John.
