Southern Europe

Malta facts and history in brief

Gozo has a distinct character all its own.
The countryside is prettier than that of its larger neighbour, the pace is slower and there are fewer tourists.
The island has its share of medieval architecture and prehistoric temples, making it a great place to see the best of what Malta has to offer.
The commercial centre of the island, Victoria, has a sleepy 17th century feel.
The view from atop the Citadel, or 'Gran Costello,' takes in the entire island.
The Norman House, on the Citadel's grounds, houses an interesting folk museum.
You can retrace the footsteps of Ulysses at Calypso's Cave, in the cliffs overlooking Ramla Bay on the northeastern coast.
Other interesting sights on Gozo include the underground Alabaster Caves in the tiny town of Xaghra, a couple of kilometres southwest of Ramla Bay and the Ggantija temple complex, also near Xaghra, is the most spectacular in Malta.

In 2001 Hui Chin and I spent some time on the Maltese islands.

By bus we traveled all over the islands, including taking the ferry to Gozo and some of the smaller islands.

We also went on a sightseeing boat trip from Sliema Quay, around Valletta and all the bays of Marsamxett and the Grand Harbours.

With frequent bus services and with some walking we managed to see just about everything.
