A Microcosm of the Mediterranean
The fascinating past of the Maltese islands is evident wherever you go, and if you want to see the sights in Malta, one of your first stops will surely be Malta's seven breathtaking megalithic temples, which are listed as World Heritage Sites. Your sightseeing tour of Malta should also include the baroque capital of Valletta, founded by the Knights of St John, which is also a World Heritage Site. And then there is Malta's walled medieval capital, Mdina. Malta has been described as a giant open-air museum so it is a great destination to sightsee in. The islands of Malta are famed for their excellent crafts, including blown glass and handmade lace. And don't forget to visit to the National Museum of Archaeology for a glimpse at some prehistoric artefacts, followed by the historic St Johns Co-Cathedral.
