The city of Valletta is a World Heritage Site and is considered to be one of Europe’s finest capitals, rich in culture and tradition. Valletta is inextricably linked to the history of the military and charitable Order of St John of Jerusalem. It was designed by the renowned Italian architect Francesco Laparelli and rests on a hilly peninsula between two of the finest natural harbours in the Mediterranean. Following the Great Siege of Malta in 1565, the Knights of St John mobilised the necessary resources to found the new city of Valletta in 1566. The city was conceived as a single, holistic creation of the late Renaissance, with a uniform grid plan within fortified and bastioned city walls. Since its creation, the city has witnessed a number of rebuilding projects, yet those have not compromised the harmony between the dramatic topography and the Hippodamian grid.
Valletta is a living city and the heartbeat of the Maltese Islands, being the nerve centre of the country’s political, administrative and business sphere. The city is also Malta’s principal cultural centre. This is no wonder given its unique collection of churches, with the unparalleled St John’s co-Cathedral being the jewel in the crown, museums, and numerous palaces located around Valletta which the Knights of St John called auberges and which they dedicated to the different langues of their Order.
Valletta has all the amenities one could ask for. Whether it’s a performance at the stunning Manoel Theatre, a visit to one of the capital’s museums or a meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant, Malta’s capital city has it all easily within reach from your home at Strickland House.
