      Malta overview

      Located in the heart of the Mediterranean, the islands of Malta have held strategic importance for various civilisations including the Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs and Normans. When visiting Malta, you’ll see impressive fortifications that were built in the 16th century by the Knights of St John. Before securing its independence in 1964, Malta fell under British and French rule. The islands became a republic in 1974 and joined the European Union in 2004. 

      The Maltese culture is a fascinating amalgamation of history, religion and unique traditions. The Roman Catholic faith is important to the Maltese people, with each village choosing its own patron saint to celebrate throughout the year.  

      Malta has inherited architecture from every civilisation, from megalithic temples and grand medieval fortresses to Baroque churches. Local artisans are proud of traditional crafts such as lacemaking (bizzilla), pottery and silverware. Folk music and traditional dancing is a cornerstone of Maltese culture.  

      What to eat

      Celebrate Malta’s history and culture through the unique fusion of flavour in its food. Traditional Maltese snacks such as the ftira is a flatbread with a choice of delicious toppings. Alternatively, try the pastizzi, a pastry filled with either ricotta cheese or mushy peas. Seafood is a local delicacy and the traditional Maltese lampuki pie is an excellent way to sample some of the best fish Malta has to offer. If you’re looking for something sweet, try an imqaret, a traditional date-filled pastry, deep fried, served with honey and powdered sugar.
