Our recommendation of the week this week was a visit to Malta’s Three Cities. The Three Cities offer an intriguing insight into Malta and its history. Left largely untouched, these cities are a slice of authentic life as well as a glimpse into Malta’s colourful history.
The Three Cities, namely Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua, have provided a home and fortress to almost every nationality whom decided to settle on the Islands throughout history.
We started off our guided tour with a visit to the first city, Senglea. Our tour guide explained to us the history behind this city and the fact that it was first fortified in 1551 by Grand Master Claude de la Sengle wherein we get the name of the city – Senglea.
After, we walked over to the second and my personal favourite city in Malta, Vittoriosa – also known as Il-Birgu. Some say this city is often referred to as ‘the cradle of Maltese history’.
Unfortunately we were strapped for time so we decide to settle in and take in the scenes in Vittoriosa at one of the many beautiful waterfront restaurants for an ice cream and a drink.
These cities truly are the pinnacle of beauty.
