Culture in Malta and Gozo: architecture, art, museums from the Maltese heritage

Prehistoric temples, legends and the importance of religion in Malta

Maltese historical heritage date back to 7,000 years ago, when megalithic temples were built and mysterious societies inhabited the islands to then disappear suddenly, leaving only traces.

Malta is supposedly one of the first countries to have embraced Christianity, following the shipwreck of Saint Paul in 60 A.D. There are 365 churches, scattered around Malta, and you will find at least one in any village main square. One of the most magnificent once is the St. John's Cathedral in Valletta!

Attractions - CultureMuseums, Palazzos and Buildings

From archaeological finds to Second World War shelters, Malta offers millennia of history, art and architecture one next to another walking in the narrow streets of Valletta or in many other small villages.

All along the Maltese littoral you will find bastions, tower and fortifications, built to protect the Island from pirates and invaders. The knights of the Order of St. John and then the British rulers have left the most remarkable imprint on Maltese architecture.
