Malta Travel Guide: Important Cities
Modern life meshes with tradition in this European country.
Hi I’m Rebecca Britton and welcome to Watchmojo.com and today we’ll be learning more about some of the historically important cities found in Malta.
The ancient capital of the country Mdina is a waltz city with a population of less than 300.
Often called the “Silent City”, this region is a must see for visitors. Located in the middle of Malta Island, this fortified city sits atop a hill and offers splendid views of the surrounding countryside. It is estimated that Mdina was first settled in 700 BC making it the oldest city on the Island. Mdina is one of many artistic and architectural triumphs located in Malta.
Known as the three cities Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea are three fortified towns found on the island of Malta. Originally, these cities where the political and cultural center of the country prior to the building of Valleta.
Today, they remain important harbor towns and icons of the area’s history. Largely unvisited by tourists, they also offer a glimpse at everyday life in Malta
One of Malta’s most historically significant cities Vittoriosa is sometimes called “The Cradle of Maltese History.” Originally known as Birgu, its name was changed to Vittoriosa to reflect its victorious role in the area’s history.
Located on the grand harbor, the city lies across from Valleta. Because of its strategic location, Vittoriosa is home to one of the island’s oldest fortifications Fort St. Angelo
Senglea is a small city and Malta’s most heavily populated. The city has preserved its artistic legacy with remarkable architecture and sculptures located throughout.
