Description of Destination : malta
Palma de Mallorca
Palma de Mallorca


Malta's capital has the largest and best naturally-protected harbour in the Mediterranean. After the Knights of St. John had narrowly managed to beat off the Turks during the Great Siege of 1565, Grand Master Jean de la Vallette ordered massive fortifications and the creation of a fully planned city on virgin ground. The streets were laid out as a grid to allow cooling sea breezes to low through them unimpeded. Today it remains a remarkably unspoilt historic city with splendid Renaissance buildings, including the Knights auberges (inns) and palatial cathedral, and a large proportion of Baroque buildings. The main shopping street is Republic Street, flanked by houses with characteristic Maltese balconies.
