The Maltese Islands have been described as one big open-air museum. What makes them unique is that so much of their past is visible today. Delve into Valletta and the rest of the Island’ mysterious prehistory, retrace the footsteps of St. Paul or see where the Knights of St. John defended Christendom.
Megaliths, medieval dungeons and Calypso’s Cave – The Maltese Islands are positively mythic. The narrow meandering streets of their towns and villages lead to the main square, which is invariably dominated by the huge baroque church. As the countryside is dotted with medieval towers, wayside chapels and the oldest known human structures in the world, the Islands have rightly been described as an open-air museum.
