Great Siege 1565 Malta

Great Siege 1565 Malta

Karl V., Spanish king and the Kaiser of Germany gave the island of Malta as fiefdom to the Knights Hospitalizes (Knights of St. John) in 1530 with the purpose to use their powers against the godless enemies. The Turks defeated the fleet of Venice which was the biggest at that time in the Mediterranean Sea in 1538. The only galleys that could still endanger the Turks were that of the Knights of St. John. A conflict was inescapable. ... more

Mdina - the old capital

Mdina is the old capital city of Malta and lies on the south-western part of the island. You could say only a little bit in the outback. Beside it is Rabat. The population of Mdina is around 400 people. It is quite impossible that the population can increase, because the whole city resembles more a castle or fort then a city. The city lies 190mtrs above sea level (that’s quite high for Maltese landscape) and is surrounded with slopes on three sides.

Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni

The Hypogeum is a subsurface cave-system in Hal-Saflieni (a small village) near Paola. The caves were discovered accidentally during the process of excavating a cistern in 1902. The numerous rooms are distributed on three levels which are all connected with stairs.

Plaza Shopping Mall

The Plaza Shopping Mall lies in the centre of Sliema and is similar to Bay Street in Paceville, however the flair is much different. The reason for this difference is probably that BayStreet is influenced very strongly by the nearby entertainment centre and nightlife of Paceville.

A visit in Sicily

If you want you can go on an excursion to Sicily. The cost is around €90 (including return) - includes a complete tour around Sicily with the bus.
