Alive with history
Malta is the location of several some of the world’s most striking sites form prehistoric times, with massive ancient temples set high on the cliff tops, and impressive underground necropolis intricately carved directly into the cliff sides. These are islands with an almost tangible sense of history, and a visit here will stay with you for a very long time. The island retains its besieged air, despite the current era of peace. This comes from the strong fortified cities with defensive walls surrounding them, the several mighty fortresses and underground tunnels that were so important during World War II.
