Discover Fishing

The Maltese Islands have been imposed upon by a diverse range of colonisers throughout their history. Nowadays, the remnants of these forces can still be felt in the country's traditions and culture - from the continuing Order of the Knights of St John to surviving British influences from 150 years of colonisation.
