The Maltese Islands have often been referred to as the island of sunshine and history and with good reason. With a history boasting 6,000 years of civilisation, every square inch of its land, its temples and monuments bear witness to these past civilisations. For those of you with an appetite for culture, Malta and Gozo are strewn with fascinating historical and archaeological sites, some of which date back earlier than the Pyramids!
Museum lovers will find a variety of treasures to discover. Each museum houses fabulous artefacts from various fields and eras be it art, archaeology, natural history, war-time, the temples or our celebrated maritime history. And more treasures can be found in one of the 364 churches built on the island!
For those interested in old fortifications built at the time of the Knights of St. John, military and historical parades are regularly staged to allow visitors to be swept back in time and if you really wish to fully understand Malta’s history, then visit one of the multi-vision shows which encapsulate Maltese history from its very beginnings to modern-day advancements.
No visitor has ever been to Malta and left without visiting her sister islands, Gozo and Comino. Gozo, aptly termed as the island where time stands still because of the tranquillity it exudes, is greener than Malta and more rural allowing for sweeping views of terraced fields, glimmering shore-lines, and imposing churches. Comino, a mile long and uninhabited, is a veritable paradise with a lagoon bluer than turquoise.
And for those who wish to take it easier, simply stroll around our charming towns and villages and enjoy the uniqueness and tranquility that is so very typical of the Islands.
