Valletta is the capital city of the island, located halfway down the northern coastline. It was designed to be a fortress for the Knights of St John and built from scratch in the 16th century following their victory of the Great Siege. Today it is a thriving and beautiful city, offering magnificent buildings, glorious views and architectural evidence of the different eras in its history. Latterly, the entrance to the city has been entirely re-designed by the famous Italian architect Renzo Piano. The entire city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the only capital city in the world to have this honour.
The jewel in the crown is the fabulous church of the Knights, today known as St John’s Co-Cathedral, which offers unsurpassed craftsmanship and stunning artworks of every type including two fine works of art by Caravaggio. The floor contains 369 inlaid marble tombstones of the Knights and is often described as the most beautiful floor in the world.
