Despite its small size, malt It is an ideal destination for a summer vacation or a getaway. And it is that this island located in the heart of the Mediterranean has a lot to offer the traveler, including three places declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In addition, its splendid climate should not be forgotten. In fact, on rare occasions the temperatures drop below 15 degrees.
What we are going to do today in Hard Hobbit To Break is to talk to you about all the things you must do on your visit to Malta. Can you come with us?
First of all, we recommend a visit to Valletta, the capital of Malta, a city that has been declared a World Heritage Site by the Unesco. Here you will discover steep alleys and many monuments and historical buildings, such as the Co-Cathedral of Saint John, where the work The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist by Carvaggio is located. A visit to Fort St. Elmo, the Palace of the Grand Master, the Anglican Cathedral of Saint Paul and the port is also worthwhile.
The Three Cities
To the southeast of Valletta are The Three Cities, three small quiet towns but of great cultural value. We refer to Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea. The first one is very picturesque and lively, it has a marina and numerous bars, pubs and restaurants, in addition to preserving the beauty of its cobbled alleys, its promenades and its churches. For its part, Cospicua allows you to visit a port built in 1776. As for Senglea, an old fortification built in the mid-16th century, it offers wonderful views.
Another place worth a visit is Marsaxlook, a quaint little town located on the original south coast. Here you will find the traditional Maltese fishing boats, better known as luzzu. Beyond these boats, the town is really pretty, especially the main street. Also, if you go on Sunday you can enjoy the fish market that takes place in the morning. You should also visit the Forti Rikazoli, a fort where movies like "Troy" or "Gladiator" have been filmed.
Joy and Cumin
If you have the opportunity to travel to Malta, you cannot miss the islands of Gozo and Comino, mainly the first of them, considered the second largest island in the country and also the most fertile. Here you will discover such wonderful places as Rabat, Victoria and Dwejra, where the Blue Window, a 20 meter high rock arch. We also recommend visiting the Inland Sea, a lagoon connected to the sea by a narrow cave. For its part, Comino is the ideal place to disconnect, since cars do not circulate and there are practically no urban areas. The Blue Lagoon stands out from this island.
Mdina, Rabat and temples
Other towns worth visiting are Medina and Rabat, places where medieval and baroque architecture mix. The Puerta de Mdina stands out from the first city, giving way to a network of alleys and beautiful palaces. For its part, Rabat preserves numerous convents, monasteries and churches. A visit to the temples of Do Qui, which date from 3600 and 3200 BC; the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, the only underground temple that is still preserved today; and the temple of Tarxien, in the city of Paola, which are more than 4,000 years old.
We do not want to say goodbye without first talking about the many water and sports activities that you can do in this small country. So, the first thing to keep in mind is that it is an ideal place to Diving, especially for the novice, since its waters are calm and the climate is ideal. In addition to discovering the flora and fauna of the Mediterranean, you will be able to dive among ships sunk during the Second World War. The best places for diving are Comino and Gozo. Of course, you can also practice snorkel. Furthermore, Malta is the ideal place to sail, kayak or canoe; horseback riding through natural areas and beaches; tour the island by bike; and go hiking and trekking.
