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.
