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.
