The capital of Malta, Valletta, has preserved the traces of its past: the island was in the hands of the Soldiers of Christ and it was one of the bastions of Christianity. Its baroque architecture and the geometric checkerboard layout of its streets dominate your impressions of the city. On both sides of Republic Street, the city's main street, the major monuments are grouped, between luxury boutiques and souvenir shops. Valletta does not only offer its own cultural richness, as it is quite close to the Three Cities and the famous prehistoric site of Tarxien. An essential stop for all lovers of history who want to learn more about the mysterious knights of the Order of Malta.
There are many monuments and museums in Valletta such as the Grand Masters' Palace, historic inns, the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Museum of Archaeology and Saint John's Cathedral. Stroll to the Manoel theatre on Merchant's Street, which has a very pleasant market in the early morning on weekdays, to better appreciate all of the architectural treasures of the city. Do not forget to look around the ramparts, to enjoy the Upper Baracca Gardens in the late afternoon and tour around the port by boat.
