Blue Grotto

Blue Grotto

The Blue Grotto is situated south-westwards of Malta, in Wied iz-Zurrieq (Zurrieq’s Valley) on the outskirts of the city Zurrieq. It is worth seeing. The best way to discover the Grotto is via boat. With the boat trip you will enter some of the grottos. The glassy, blue water is especially nice. ... more

Cottonera (Three Cities) - the ‘three cities‘: Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea

Cottonera (Three Cities) - the ‘three cities‘: Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea

The word Cottonera describes the three cities: Vittoriosa (Birgu), Senglea (L‘Isla) and Cospicua (Bormla). The peninsula in the middle, Vittoriosa, was the only peninsula of the three peninsulas which was inhabited at the arrival of the Knights of St. John. In the past the city was called ‘Borgo del Castello‘. That‘s where the name Birgu comes from. Valletta didn‘t exist at that time. ... more

Dingli Cliffs

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. ... more

GOZO

GOZO

Gozo has something to offer which Malta does not have. For example on one hand the Azure Window, a naturally formed arch on the coast. On the other hand the capital Victoria with the small romantic lanes and the large bastions, from which one has an excellent view of the whole of Gozo and parts of Malta and Comino. Then there is the beautiful beach, the Ramla Bay, and the historical temples of Ggantija. In addition the flair of the island and the inhabitants is a completely different one than in Malta. ... more

Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni

Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni

Sights in Birzebbugia

Sights in Birzebbugia

There isn’t much to see in Birzebbuga. Most of the sights, like the three batteries, are too old or collapsed. The church and the Pretty Bay (Ramla ta’Birzebbuga) are the two nicest attractions in Birzebbuga. However, compared with other churches in Malta it’s quite simple and small. ... more

Sights in Marsaxlokk

Sights in Marsaxlokk

In Marsaxlokk there isn’t much to see. The city has a nice bay, full of colorful traditional Maltese boats, also known as Dghajjes- or Luzzu-boats. The attraction #1 is the market. In the centre is a beautiful big church surrounded by old houses. Not far away from Marsaxlokk in the south lies the Fort St. Lucian. North-eastwards are an old church and the temples of Tas-Silg. ... more

Sights in Mdina and Rabat

Sights in Mdina and Rabat

The whole city of Mdina is worth seeing. The city consists of many small alleys, a huge city wall with three gates, a very nice cathedral (from inside as well as outside), an observation platform (from there you have a nice view over the northern part of Malta), and much, much more. Rabat whereas is a modern city. There are also some nice sights, as the St. Paul’s Church and Grotto, the Museum of Roman Antiquities and the St. Paul’s Catacombs. While Rabat is a bit more vital, Mdina offers more culture and history. Have fun looking through the pages. ... more

Sights in Vittoriosa (Birgu)

Sights in Vittoriosa (Birgu)

There is so much to see in Vittoriosa - the whole city is an open-air museum. The city is surrounded by an incredible flair of history, culture and modernity. The structure of the city equals that of a triangle. On the side facing to the inland there is a big city-wall with two gates. The most interesting way to enter the city is through the Couvre Porte. The side directed to the harbor entrance is also fortified. On the fortification, high above the sea, there is a nice promenade. From there you have a nice view on Valletta, the harbor gate and Kalkara. On the tip of the city is the Fort St. Angelo. The fort is stunning. The last side of the triangle, the side facing the Dockyard Creek/Senglea, has no fortification. There you can find the Casino de Venezia, Maritime Museum, St. Lawrence Church and a luxury hotel. In the city itself something is awaiting you around every corner. In the centre lies the Victory-Square - the square got his name after the Great Siege 1565 of the Turkish. It is said that the Grandmaster La Vallette was wounded during the siege on a fight at the fortification ’Poste de Castille’. The Turkish were already inside the city when the Grandmaster counterattacked them together with his personal body-guards. ... more

St. Julians, just beautiful

St. Julians, just beautiful

St. Julians is wonderful. The promenade is very nice and at night everything is lit up. Many restaurants are very inviting, not only for the food but also for the beautiful view over St. Julians bay and the street-life. Cafes, bars and souvenir shops are everywhere. It is worth to have a look at. ... more

Tarxien Temple

Tarxien Temple

The most popular temple in Malta can be found in the village of Tarxien and is known as the Tarxien Temple. This was accidentally discovered in the year 1916.

The Popeye village

The Popeye village

The movie about Popeye (starring Robin Williams in his first ever movie!) was shot here in Malta in 1980. Only for the movie a whole village was constructed. The village is still there, north-westwards on the island - unfortunately it’s not easy reachable. ... more

Valletta - The capital of Malta

Valletta - The capital of Malta

Valletta is the capital city of Malta - a very nice city, very well fortified and preserved. Everywhere you can see fortifications, huge constructions! The main road is full of shops and also always full of people, except at night when most of the shops are closed. As soon as the shops have closed the city is empty. ... more

Vittoriosa (Birgu)

Vittoriosa (Birgu)

Vittoriosa (Birgu) is probably the nicest of the three peninsulas southwards of Valletta. The city was the first settlement around this area. When the Knights of St. John arrived in Malta in 1530 they set up camp in Vittoriosa and started to upgrade the fortifications, including the Fort St. Angelo. After the Great Siege of 1565 they moved to Valletta.

Birgu has nowadays a population of 3000 and the fortifications are as impressive as those of Valletta. Behind every corner you can discover something new. The best way to enter the city is through the ‘Couvre Porte’ which was restored in 2002. Above is a modern gate which breaks through the fortification of the ‘Poste de Provence’ and is used as a road for cars. ... more
