Places to Visit in Valletta

Places to Visit in and around Valletta
Staying in the capital city has its perks. For Chevron travellers staying in Valletta there will be something to see or do around almost every corner. Here are some of the best places to visit in Valletta Malta that should be on anyone’s planner.

The top rated landmark in the city is St. John’s Co-Cathedral, a 16th century cathedral that tourists flock to all year round. Its large interior and acoustics also make it a unique venue for classical music performances. There is even an annual organ festival for which the church is the main venue. We’d recommend going just to see the amazing artwork surrounding the altar and the gold detailing you’ll see around the entranceway.
St Johns Co Cathedral on Maundy Thursday
Valletta was originally a very important military city. Its position with a slight slope going down in to the sea made it perfect for building a fort city on. If you’re ever on a boat tour you’ll be able to see this unique layout while in the water. You can get a slice of this military history by visiting the Saluting Battery, located on the aptly named Battery Street. Here you can watch a salute with a gun being carried out and visit a museum detailing the importance of Malta in European history. We also recommend checking out the Siege Bell War Memorial close by the Valletta Merisi Suites and the War Museum in Valletta in Fort St Elmo.

Other notable historical sites dotted around the capital include Hastings Gardens, St George Square, Strait Street, The Knights Hospitallers and the National Museum of Archaeology. And if you want a cultured slant to your time here, check if there is a show on at the Manoel Theatre; one of the oldest working theatres in Europe and home to the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra.
