Malta’s Enchanting Capital Cities Across the Ages

Malta’s incredibly rich history has seen the isle transform over the centuries, and with such transformation, so did the seat of its capital city. Mdina, Birgu and finally Valletta, each city bears testament to a unique period in Malta’s story.

Complement your historical discoveries across the isle with stays at two off-the-beaten track accommodation retreats located in Birgu and Valletta – Locanda La Gelsomina and Saint Paul – both of which welcome those who appreciate authenticity and detail-centric spaces. Find time to nurture your body and spirit with a restorative Aromatherapy Anti-Stress massage and a lush fresh smoothie at eco-spa Sanya.
