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 - 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. The city has almost the form of a square and is very strong fortified. ... more

Armier Bay

Armier Bays location is very far in the north - it is the northernmost beach in Malta. Despite that it is very well visited in the summer. The water is crystal blue and the beach sand is white and fine. There are several kiosks and restaurant/cafes around the beach. Opposite to the beach one can see the small island of Comino and the sister island Gozo.

Malta when it rains

It’s only raining very little during the summer in Malta. In winter therefore much more. In Malta there are two kinds of rain, no rain at all or very strong rain.

Dingli Cliffs

Short information about the Dingli Cliffs: At Dingli Cliffs there is a nice foot path - doesn’t lie to close to the edge of the cliff so you don’t need to be scared. However, there are no barriers which can stop you from going to the edge – so every care should be taken. It’s quite windy most of the time, so you should dress accordingly. There is also a small cafe.
