Valletta, Malta

Most Proud

Malta's capital city, Valletta preserves most of its medieval architecture, built in the 16th and 17th centuries by the Knights Hospitaller, once a powerful military order.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mosta Parish and Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Paul. Step out of the city life by going to Spinola Bay and Ghajn Tuffieha Bay. Venture out of the city with trips to Scuba & Snorkeling (in St. Paul's Bay), Mellieha (Mellieha Parish Church, Mellieha Beach, &more) and Malta Classic Car Collection Museum (in Qawra). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of St. John's Co-Cathedral, get to know the fascinating history of Mdina Old City, pause for some serene contemplation at Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and appreciate the history behind Mdina Main Gate - Baroque gateway.
