Although somewhat scarred by World War II, Valletta prides itself on its magnificent Baroque palaces, piazzas, gardens and churches. The Magisterial Palace, built between 1571 and 1574, now houses the Maltese Parliament and offices of the President of Malta.
Knights of St. John’s Co-Cathedral
A breath-taking Baroque treasure. Headstones of knights line the inlaid marble floor. Other attractions include two important works by Italian master, Caravaggio, and a treasure trove of sacred silk vestments embroidered with gold and silver.
The National Museum of Archaeology
A small but fascinating museum filled with pottery, sculpture, ornaments and implements form the island’s prehistoric past.
