Art & Architecture

When you want to feel history

Just reach out & let history touch your senses

Art & Architecture

What they designed, built & painted has lived on. Discover the talent that has been enjoyed for centuries.

The building has presence. As you walk up to towards St John’s Co Cathedral, you can’t help but throw your imagination back to a time when knights roamed the capital and fear of the Church as it was then, lived inside everyone. But just wait till you step inside to witness the breathtaking art of Caravaggio’s ‘Beheading of St John the Baptist’. Art historians have never found the right words to describe how this masterpiece makes you feel, so we’re not going to try. Needless to say seeing this stunning painting is a must-have experience for any art lover.

Continue your day with a visit to one of Malta’s best examples of a gorgeous stately home at Pallazzo Parisio. Next stop the old capital city of Mdina, also known as The Silent City. As your hushed footsteps fall on the narrow passageways and you look around you at all of the grace that the old buildings can’t help but resonate, you would be forgiven for wondering if the city fell silent out of respect for all the stories, wars, hopes and dreams that this wondrous city witnessed over the centuries. Finally pay your respects to the ancient builders of the Hagar Qim Temples. A memory for you to take away that was truly thousands of years in the making.
