Where History meets the Present

Malta’s rich heritage unfolds through a series of captivating attractions, several of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Valletta, the capital, boasts the iconic St. John’s Co-Cathedral, an impressive Baroque masterpiece. The Grand Master’s Palace and the various Auberges echo the grandeur of the Knights of St. John. Intricate baroque buildings fit seamlessly with Renzo Piano’s minimal Parliament Building, which sits alongside them. The megalithic temples of Ħaġar Qim, Mnajdra and Ġgantija showcase the Islands’ prehistoric legacy, while the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, an ancient burial site, unveils secrets of the past. Mdina, the medieval silent city, enchants with its timeless charm. These sites collectively narrate Malta’s extraordinary history, making it a living testament to cultural continuity.

A gastronomy scene to be discovered
