Malta is located right in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea south of Sicily and north of Tunisia. The three islands consist of Malta, Gozo and tiny Comino. The Maltese islands have a vibrant and fascinating history dating back 7,000 years, and there are some of the oldest free-standing stone temples in the world. Due to Malta’s strategic location, it has been occupied by various powers over the years who have left their mark on the island’s culture and architecture. The Knights of St John occupied the islands from 1530 until 1798 and Malta formed part of the British Empire soon after. Malta gained independence in 1964 and ceased to be a British military base in 1979. Must see destinations include the capital Valletta, the ancient fortified city of Mdina, and a short trip across the channel by ferry to Gozo.
