The archipelago of Malta is made up of three small islands located under Sicily; Malta, Gozo and Comino. Located in the Mediterranean sea, Malta enjoys a very warm climate throughout the year with slightly wet and windy winters. Summers are generally hot, dry and humid due to the surrounding sea which give the locals and tourists ample time to enjoy the beautiful weather between April to the end of October.
Malta boasts some of the best history in the world which can still be enjoyed today. These places include numerous museums and sites of interest which are open all week, including weekends. The Capital city, Valletta, is a UNESCO World Heritage site due to the large number of historical buildings found in it. Similar to Valletta, the Three Cities are also a must-see and they promise to take you back in time while you walk through the fortifications. Cottonera is the place where the Great Siege took place between the Ottoman Empire and the Order of the Knights of Saint John of Jerusalem. Moreover, you may also visit the megalithic Hagar Qim and Mnajdra structures which are one of the longest standing stone age temples built circa 3600BC – no joke! There’s also my favourite place in Malta, Mdina – a very well preserved old capital of Malta known as the Silent City.
History overdose? Don’t worry, there are other places which offer activities other than history. You should check out the beautiful rural villages of Dingli and Mgarr. Consider a little bit of trekking too. Drop by Marsaxlokk, a fishing village in the south of the island or walk Sliema’s promenade after having lunch or dinner.
I promise that this page will show you what this magical archipelago offers; all through my camera lens.
