Beautiful Birgu

Birgu, or Vittoriosa as it is also known, has been settled since the time of the Phoenicians and whilst it has changed hands, shape, and size over the years, it has always played a prominent part in the history of the country. It was once the capital of Malta- chosen by the Order of Saint John due to its strategic location and impenetrable fortress and was an integral part in the famous Siege of Malta in 1551. Nowadays it is a myriad of winding streets with quaint old fashioned houses and eateries selling traditional Maltese delicacies. Its shore is lined by the luxury Grand Harbour Marina and locals pride themselves on welcoming some of the world’s biggest and most luxurious superyachts almost every summer.

Sumptuous Senglea

The city of Senglea, also known as Citta Invicta in Latin, is located towards the South-Eastern side of Valletta’s magnificent harbour. It takes its name from the grandmaster Claude de la Sengle, who built it during the time of the Knights of St John. Senglea also played a key role in the Siege and this in fact led to its Latin name which means quite literally “Unconquered City”. During the Second World War, the city and its inhabitants suffered devastating losses at the hands of the Luftwaffe bombers. More recently, Senglea was proud to gain the title of “European Destination of Excellence” in recognition of its aquatic tourism industry.

Captivating Cospicua

Last but not least, the city of Cospicua, otherwise known as Cottonera lies within the Grand Harbour and finds its place between Birgu and Senglea. With a population of over 5,500 people, it is the most densely populated of the three cities and also enjoys the most visitors. It’s steep hills wind down to a recently refurbished waterfront which is dotted with cafes, restaurants, and superyacht pontoons. From here you can catch the water taxi over to the capital, or even take tours around the Grand Harbour in a traditional Maltese Dghajsa. Cospicua is also famous for its festas held on the 8th of December and on Good Friday each year. On these two dates, the city is decorated in colourful flags and people flock from near and far to celebrate on its picturesque streets.
