With the wealth of its heritage, the warmth of its climate and the hospitality of its inhabitants, Malta is an excellent geographical location at the heart of the Mediterranean… where 7000 years ago travellers from the larger island of Sicily arrived, settling in the archipelago, living in caves and building stone temples. The Phoenicians followed opening a trading post for the Mediterranean Northern Areas. The Romans colonised the island and transformed it to a Province of the Roman Empire with the city of Mdina becoming their administrative hub.
St. Paul was shipwrecked and brought Christianity to a people who worshipped the old gods. Malta and its capital, Mdina, was a stronghold for controlling the Mediterranean Sea so the archipelago was dominated by different dynasties; Normans, Angevins, Castilians, but the most famous were The Knights of the Order of St. John, who transformed the islands, with magnificent architecture and artistic splendour.
