Malta is one of those small places that is easy to miss, but almost impossible to forget.
Malta is one of the smallest and the most densely populated nation states. Every major military power across the ages has fought to gain control of Malta to gain control of the Mediterranean sea. The islands are at a crucial location, between Europe and northern Africa. With such a location, controlling these islands meant naval supremacy in the Mediterranean.
The result is a collection of historical remains and a mass of heritage from every major European power over the centuries. Roman baths, Corinthian remains, French savoir-faire, Italian style, British military. It’s all there, all collected in a small place, making it simple to discover it all in one go.
