Valletta is Malta’s capital city and is the smallest Southern European capital city spanning only 0.3 miles. It’s also classified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. It’s also a history buff’s dreamland because of its abundant Baroque-era architecture and wartime history.
Despite being ravaged back in World War II, it still retains much of what made the ruling houses of the continent refer to it as “Superbissima,” which means “Most Proud” in Latin. You’ll be able to bask in its glory by simply strolling its quaint streets and marveling at its famous edifices like St. John’s Co-Cathedral, the Royal Opera House, the Parliament House, and its fortifications.
