What To Expect

Mdina, the Silent City, is Malta’s former capital. The history of Mdina goes back more than 4000 years, and it is where the Apostle Saint Paul lived in Mdina in 60 A.D. after being shipwrecked on the Islands.

Mdina has been known by different names and titles, depending on its rulers and role, but its medieval name describes it best – ‘Citta’ Notabile’: the noble city.

It was home then, as now, to Malta’s noble families; some are descendants of the Norman, Sicilian and Spanish overlords who made Mdina their home from the 12th century onwards. Impressive palaces line its narrow, shady streets.

Mdina is one of Europe’s finest examples of an ancient walled city and is extraordinary in its mix of medieval and baroque architecture.

Perched on a hilltop in northern Malta, laid-back Mellieħa has a more local feel than many of the island's more developed southern resort towns. You'll find Malta's longest beach here, the white-sand Mellieħa (or Għadira) Bay.

Mellieħa derives from the Semitic root m-l-ħ, which means salt. This is probably derived from the ancient Punic-Roman salt pans which existed at Mellieħa Bay. The Għadira Nature Reserve now occupies the site of the salt pans.

Mellieħa was first inhabited in around 3000 BC, during the Neolithic period. During the Roman period, troglodytes began to live in the caves of Mellieħa's valleys.

During the early years of Hospitaller rule in Malta, Mellieħa remained abandoned.

Mellieħa, as it is today, developed whilst Malta was under British rule. The village became a parish again in 1844 and began to develop after the British encouraged people to settle in the area by giving leases to the population.

The Siege of Malta in 1565 captured the European imagination and mobilised the resources needed to create the new city of Valletta, founded soon after, in 1566. The Knights of St John, aided by the most respected European military engineers of the 16th century, conceived and planned the city as a single, holistic creation of the late Renaissance, with a uniform grid plan within fortified and bastioned city walls.

The capital of Malta is inextricably linked to the history of the military and charitable Order of St John of Jerusalem. Valletta’s 320 monuments, all within an area of 55 ha, make it one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world.

Walking in Valletta feels like one huge open-air museum. Despite its small size, Valletta is packed with sites of historical significance, with buildings dating back to the 16th century. So much so that it’s been an officially listed UNESCO World Heritage site since 1980.

After visiting the famous sights of Valletta and Mdina, dive into the depths of Maltese culture at Marsaxlokk, a beautiful fishing town in southern Malta famous for its colourful luzzu boats.

Once in Malta, visiting the Marsaxlokk fish market alongside the island’s largest and most picturesque harbour is a must!

Fort Delimara, which film buffs may recognise from the 2016 movie Assassin’s Creed, is one of the island’s many coastal defences built by the Knights of Malta. It may not be as grand as the fortifications of Valletta, but its unique location, built into the cliff face, is a sight to behold. The fort is endangered due to coastal erosion, so it isn’t open to the public.

Dominating the village skyline is the Marsaxlokk Parish Church. The 19th-century Roman Catholic church is dedicated to Our Lady of Pompeii. Take special note of the historical statues that decorate the building.
