Malta

Introduction

From the ancient Neolithic temples of Mnajdra and Hypogeum to the baroque magnificence of local palazzos, Malta is undoubtedly a world-class destination in which to live, work and relax.

Serving as the gateway between North Africa and Europe, the islands have a long and proud history of conquerors, and various civilizations have left their distinctive marks on the country.

From the Venetians, the Maltese draw their iconic colourful boats seen in harbours all over Valetta. From the Knights of St John, the impressive ramparts and fortresses of Valletta and the Three Cities, marking the city out as a true historical treasure trove.

Malta features impressive and unique architecture, the most distinctive being St John’s Cathedral in the capital as well as the famed Mosta Dome.

For the holidaymaker seeking to work on their tan, there are plenty of resorts and a thriving nightlife. The water here is warmer and cleaner than many other countries in the Mediterranean. For the adventurous, Malta also offers a full gamut of opportunities for walking, rock climbing, sailing and water sports.
