Holidays in Malta

Merhba - or welcome - to Malta, the island of enchantment. Echoes of a long and glorious history abound in this sun-soaked Mediterranean gem, from the medieval walled city of Mdina to the splendid capital city, Valletta, built by the Knights of St John both as a fortress and a spectacular architectural celebration of their defeat of the besieging Ottoman Turks in 1565. In picturesque old fishing harbours bob vibrantly decorated boats, ‘protected’ from evil spirits by eyes painted on the bow as they have been for more than two millennia.
