UNESCO World Heritage Sites Malta - City of Valletta

The City of Valletta, capital of Malta, has witnessed history continually since it was ruled by the Phoenicians and the Greeks until the Arabs and the Order of the Knights of St John. This historical importance has made Valletta a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Designed following a Renaissance style and with 320 historic monuments, Valletta is one of the most concentrated cities in this field. Two of the most popular ones are the Cathedral of St John and the Palace of the Grand Master.

Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum

The Ħal Saflieni hypogeum is an underground cemetery excavated around the year 2500 BC. The structure consists on three levels of chambers that originally contained the remains of about 7000 individuals, decorated by the only prehistoric wall paintings on the Maltese Islands. Ħal Saflieni is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to these facts and also for the artefacts found in it such as vessels and clay figurines.

Megalithic Temples of Malta

The islands of Malta and Gozo contain seven megalithic temples of great archaeological importance thanks to their good preservation and diversity of decoration and form. Since 1980 they have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Ġgantija temple complex in Gozo is an example. Older than the pyramids of Egypt, this ensemble is a very well preserved archaeological reference of the Maltese Bronze Age.
