Valletta : Michelin's recommendations
Valletta is full of reminders of the Knights of Malta, who founded the city in the 16C. Remarkable religious buildings, the ramparts of a city obsessed by the Ottoman invasion… These grandiose defences give you a foretaste of the charms to be found as you stroll about the streets, which bear the distinctive golden hue of the famous local limestone, globerigina.
