Malta, together with Gozo and Comino, forms the Maltese archipelago, a trinity of ancient gems located in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea. Malta is the largest of the three islands, with a population of over 400,000 and an area of 316 square kilometres.
Situated halfway between Gibraltar and Alexandria on a latitudinal line, with Sicily and North Africa to its North and South respectively, Malta has always been at the crossroads of trading routes. Over the centuries, the island has been under the rule of the Phoenician, Roman, Moorish, French and British civilizations, due to its strategic importance as a naval base.
A place of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, such as Valletta, the Megalithic Temples and the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, Malta is chock-full of tourist destinations, owing its attractions to its warm climate, magnificent prehistoric temples, fossil-studded cliffs, glittering hidden coves and thrilling diving sites.
