Like a kaleidoscope of different civilizations, Malta has preserved all the traces of its extraordinary past.

From its first inhabitants , who built mysterious megalithic temples in honour of the Mother –Goddess of fertility close to 7000 years ago, to the Knights of St.John, whose Order created the first visionary state of a victorious Europe, Malta must have been an impressive island.

It is still today, so many centuries later , a very special place thanks to the warmth of its people , who radiate the typical Mediterranean spontaneity and traditional hospitality. From the time of Calypso , who according to legend held Ulysses captive on the island of Gozo for seven years, this charming way of doing things has never changed. Even the Acts of the Apostles describe the generous and friendly welcome the islanders gave St.Paul.

Malta loves to celebrate and sparkle. Religious feasts, carnival, commemorative events, everything is a good excuse for rejoicing. You could never really get to know Malta without participating in at least one if its village festas in honour of the patron Saint which are held every weekend from June till September.

As you step into history , tradition and culture of Maltese islands -you step into the timeless magic of a truly unique destination.
