Malta

From transparent blue waters to soaring cathedrals, this Mediterranean jewel offers a heady mix of beach paradise and unique cultural heritage. Visit the elegant “silent city” of Mdina where St. Paul’s Cathedral commemorates the Apostle’s shipwreck on the island in 60 A.D. or the enchanted Island of Gozo where Calypso kept Ulysses trapped in a love spell for seven years and the massive stone temples of Gjantija attest to a pre-Homeric legacy. Yet Malta’s most famous heritage is that of the Hospitalier Knights, who made Valetta their capital in 1530 and fought the Ottomans from Fort St. Elmo. Climb into the Upper Barakka Gardens for a view of the Grand Harbour or explore the Grand Master’s Palace to relive the glory days of the Knights of St. John. This rich tapestry of prehistoric ruins, medieval citadels, Norman cathedrals and Baroque palaces is set in the sun-bleached heart of the Mediterranean, offering endless pleasures for leisure-seekers as well as students of history.
