The three inhabited islands that make up the Maltese archipelago are small, little more than 316 square km in total, but they make up for this apparent geological oversight with an extraordinary history and a way of life that is uniquely Maltese. Giving the Islands their own particular character, there are Neolithic temples dating from 3600 BC, a mediaeval walled city that thrives today and an architectural heritage created by the Knights. Blending in with the past, there are luxury hotels, extensive yacht marinas and thriving modern commercial development. For a visitor there is more to see and enjoy than just sea and sun.
This book, with contributions from many of the islands’ foremost writers and photographers, encompasses all the elements that make Malta distinctive. In addition to the prehistoric sites and the Baroque superb palaces of the Knights that makes the city of Valletta so remarkable, Inside Malta encompasses the flavour of Maltese life – like the food that features on a traditional Maltese menu, the production of olive oil and sea salt that has its roots in Roman times and the charming gilded clocks that have become collectors’ pieces internationally.
Inside Malta is not a guidebook, but a record of what makes the islands unique.
