The classical fortified towns of Malta


Valletta is a fortified city of the Renaissance build on a peninsula surrounded by two natural harbours. It is Malta's capital city, a masterpiece of the baroque, a world heritage site. Within the fortified walls of the capital one finds some of Europe's finest art works, churches, palaces as well picturesque gardens providing stunning views over Valletta harbours.
Mdina, known locally as the Silent city, is a UNESCO heritage site, a superb fortified town teeming with medieval buildings as well as the stately homes of noble Maltese families. The view from its walls is magnificent, domininating over two thirds of the island.
