One of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, Valletta was founded on 28 March 1566.  Its magnificent network of fortifications extend over 27 km and are a perfect example of Renaissance military architecture.  The dignified palaces and churches built by the knights of St John form an impressive architectonic complex that led it to being described as ‘a city built by gentlemen for gentlemen.’

Site open, tower closed. ARLHS POR-073.
