Valletta
Ein Platz in der historischen Altstadt von Valletta. Alte Paläste und neue Wasserkunst ergeben eine vollkommene Harmonie. Die Wasserspiele sind leider nicht zu sehen, lasst Eure Fantasie spielen. Das Risiko einer nassen Kamera wollte ich nicht eingehen :)

More About Valletta

Valletta, Malta’s capital and a World Heritage site, is nothing short of an open-air museum. It is a living experience of Baroque architecture, a monument donated by the Knights of St John nearly five centuries ago. Throughout the years, Valletta has welcomed emperors, heads of state, artists and poets and is now the permanent seat of the Maltese government.Dotted with quaint cafés and wine bars, the city is today one of Malta’s main tourist attractions, hosting among others, the majestic St John’s Co- Cathedral, the imposing bastions and a treasure of priceless paintings. It also provides a stunning snapshot of Malta’s Grand Harbour, often described as the most beautiful in the Mediterranean.The city’s unique setting nowadays plays host to a series of cultural events, from theatre in English, to concerts by leading opera singers.A hive of business activity during the day, the city switches to a slower gear for the night. Use it to your advantage to get away from the noise and take a stroll to admire the magic of the fortified capital amplified by the gentle lighting. Admire the bastion walls, the dense clusters of worn limestone buildings, the timber balconies, and imposing Churches.from www.cityofvalletta.org
