The beauty of having a rich history
From the beauty of a baroque cathedral, ancient underground burial chambers, to live re-enactments of military cooking, Malta has many historical sites which form part of its rich history.
Ranging from Neotlithic templates such as Ġgantija Temples - one of the UNESCO’s World Heritage sites, Ħaġar Qim and Mnajdra Temples, to Valletta - Malta's Capital city built by the Knights of St. John, and Mdina - the beautiful medieval capital of Malta.
Last but not least, Valletta was chosen the European Capital of Culture for 2018.
