look at our
Our first visit during our tour is the
capital, Valletta which was built by the Knights of St. John in
1566. Here we include the Barrakka Gardens which offer stunning
views of the Grand Harbour and magnificent fortifications, a walk
down Triq Repubblika where you can admire numerous historical
buildings built by the Knights of St. John including the Auberges,
the Grand Master's Palace and the St. John's Co. Cathedral, the
Church of the Order and also home to Caravaggio's masterpiece
"Beheading of St. John" amongst other treasures.
Our final stop during the tour is the ancient city of Mdina. Mdina
is built on a plateau in the centre of the island, the city's old
Baroque buildings, Cathedral and magnificent bastion walls dominate
the rural skyline. Mdina, once the capital of Malta until the modern
city of Valletta was built had many names including Melite (Roman
occupation), Medina (Arabic occupation), Citta Notabile (Knights of
St. John) and Citta Vecchia (after Valletta was built). Today it is
also referred to as the Silent City since it inspires tranquillity
at any time of the day or night. The only way to really experience
and enjoy this city is on foot, explore the quaint alleys, narrow
streets, ancient buildings and magnificent far reaching views from
the high bastion walls.
At this stage our tour comes to an end and we make our way back.
