And now, let's share some fun and curious facts about Valletta:
Valletta was founded in 1566 by the Knights Hospitaller, a religious order of warriors known as the Knights of St. John. Why did they use an eight-pointed cross?
The city is named after Jean Parisot de Valette, the Grand Master of the Knights Hospitaller, who led Malta's defence during the Great Siege of 1565. He was a warrior with a very interesting background!
Valletta is one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The city has a rich cultural heritage, and its streets and buildings are adorned with works of art, sculptures, and...a torture pedestal!
The Grand Harbour of Valletta is one of the world's largest and deepest natural harbours and has played a vital role in the city's history and development. It witnessed countless wars and battles, and this is the eternal resting place of many who were brave to defend the island.
Sounds too good to be true that these are probably the best tours in Malta? We can't blame you, and don't take our word for it. Instead, check out other travellers' reviews on our TripAdvisor Page and Google Maps.
