Malta Towns and Villages

With such a rich history and culture, every town and village in Malta and Gozo has its own story to tell. Here is your opportunity to explore Maltese localities' points of interest, including an array of photos, 360 virtual tours and videos.

On these islands, even within the most modern housing estates may lurk prehistoric remains which were discovered while digging foundations. Most older localities have a rich heritage that goes through the ages, and many boast beautiful buildings from the era of the Romans, the Knights or the British eras. Old and new co-exist, with characteristic village cores giving way to more modern peripheries, and sixty-eight Local Councils ensure the constant up-keep and embellishment of their respective locality. Communities in Malta and Gozo developed around the establishment of a local Parish, which still today constitutes the centre of much of the village culture culminating in the local Maltese festa.
