Minimum Donation €15.00

Misled by the naval base, George Cross image, many people have only recently begun to realise that Malta and Gozo have higher proportion of historical buildings and archaeological sites than any other Mediterranean islands. Well preserved prehistoric temples are an impressive monument to the curious death-orientated religion of Malta’s first inhabitants. The other great phase of Maltese history occurred under the Knights of St John who built the magnificent city of Valletta – churches, palaces, great fortifications – most of which remains as a unique example of a Baroque city. This great building tradition is still carried on today in the construction of vast churches in the villages. All this and more is described with distinction by Christopher Kininmonth, who has already contributed a perceptive account of Sicily to this series. The information section, charts and maps have been designed to reveal to the visitor Malta’s unsuspected beauties, the variety of which are vividly illustrated in the photographs by Alfred Lammer
