Our next destination is Merchant street, one of the main streets of the city, where we can find some interesting buildings, like the Auberge of Italy where the Italian knights use to meet, the Palazzo Parisio, where Napoleon lived when he conquered the islands, and the Castellania, the Courts of the knights.

We will conclude our tour at St John's Cocathedral, one of the finest examples of high Baroque architecture in Europe, and a repository of uncountable pieces of art including two masterpieces created by Caravaggio.

I am a Spaniard who has been living in Malta for a decade. I started working in tourism years ago, and it was then that I discovered tour guiding and learning are my passion. I keep myself involved in trekking, active tours so I can learn a bit more about this little archipelago which is full of hidden secrets. 

If you really want to see Malta, give me a chance to guide you around and together we will discover new places. 

From USD 18 / Screen
