Valletta - 2018 Capital of Culture

Newest images from Valletta and the Islands of Malta


As 2018 dawns, Valletta and the Maltese Islands are set to to bask in their rich and elegant cultural heritage, recognised internationally as a European Capital of Culture.

Designed and built shortly after Malta's first Great Siege in 1565, Valletta was a fortress to defend Christendom and became a cultural home to some of the finest works of 16th-18th century Europe. Valletta is a unique Baroque masterpiece and a World Heritage City but modern Malta is much more than a living museum. It enjoys a brimming café culture, art installations and exhibits in open squares, all drenched in year-round Mediterranean sunshine.
