Valletta is Malta’s capital city. Built by the Knights of St. John in 1566, one would almost consider it a living history open air museum. A World Heritage site, full of Baroque architecture, which has welcomed a diversity of people from the most prominent politician to the street artist.
Almost entirely surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, it provides breath-taking views from many of its bastions and properties, not only of the magnificent Grand Harbour but also The Three Cities across the creek. The historical main streets, which have now also been pedestrianised, are dotted with restaurants and cafes. They are also home to many branded shops as well as smaller boutiques and a daily morning market, creating a vibrant city life.
Valletta is buzzing with activity during the day and begins to mellow as dusk sets in and the evening slow paced atmosphere takes over the heart of the capital. Many cultural events are hosted in Valletta due to its unique setting and being home to two of our historical theatres.
Experience the real soul of this unique fortified city while taking an evening stroll through the small side streets to savour the atmosphere of life in the city. It is architecturally pretty impressive and looking for a home in Valletta can be quite exciting as properties have a good balance between preserving the historical heritage and characteristics as well as being made suitable to provide the necessary comforts of modern living. Some can also be pretty quaint and original and like no others on the island. Valletta is centrally located on the island and very well connected with public transport.
Valletta was the European Capital of Culture 2018.
