Sightseeing




• In Valletta (Malta island), see some of the finest examples of Maltese-style baroque architecture in the islands in Merchants Street. Also visit the Co-Cathedral of St John, and the Grand Master’s Palace which houses tapestries designed for Louis XIV and an extraordinary armoury collection.

• If you’ve still time in Valletta, explore its museums: the National Museum of Fine Art, housed in an 18th-century palace; the Church of Our Lady of Victories and at the nearby Auberge de Provence; and the National Museum of Archaeology.

• In Mdina (Malta island), witness the citadel, which is one of the finest surviving examples of a medieval walled city. Of particular interest is the Norman-style Palazzo Falson. From Bastion Square, see breathtaking views of the surrounding area and St Paul ’s Bay.

• In Rabat (Malta island), see fine baroque churches, St Paul ’s and St Agatha’s Catacombs and the Roman Villa.

• Wonder at the Blue Grotto where, legend reports, sirens bewitched seafarers with their songs. Four caves reflect the brilliant colours of the corals and minerals in the limestone. The most spectacular is the Blue Grotto itself, best viewed in the early morning with a calm sea.

• Visit the impressive archaeological sites near Paola: Tarxien, with its neolithic temple; Hypogeum, a three-level complex of ancient underground burial chambers dating back 3,000 years; and Ghar Dalam (Dark Cave) where the remains of now-extinct birds and animals have been found (website: www.heritagemalta.org).

• In Hagar Qim on the south of the island, see a neolithic temple from 3,000BC, constructed from huge closely fitting stones decorated in a very ornate style.

• At Marsaxlokk, find your way to the recently discovered Temple of Juno, which was originally used by the Greeks as a place of worship to the goddess of fertility.
