Overview

Across the Grand Harbour, to the south of Valletta, is the historical fortified town of Vittoriosa, easily reached by means of a ferry boat. Many historians refer to the area as the cradle of Maltese history offering shelter to who ever took over the Maltese Islands. If ever there was a town which has escaped the ravages of development and succeeded in keeping its original character, Vittoriosa is the place. Pretty and quaint alleys will not fail to delight you as you walk through the old town where the knights first settled when they came to Malta in 1530. The historic centre is characterised by winding streets, replete with buildings erected by the knights shortly after their arrival. Of particular beauty and historic value are the town's intact Auberge de France and Auberge of England. Vittoriosa is also a harbour-town, its city walls offer spectacular views of the Grand Harbour as well as of Valletta.
