The Knights of St. John became the toast of a grateful Europe after their triumph in the Great Siege of Malta in 1565, in which they repelled Ottoman invaders. Valletta’s magnificent Grandmaster's Palace in Valletta reflects the knights’ heroic standing and the wealth lavished upon them. Construction began in 1571 on the palace to house the supreme head of the Knights of St. John.

Valletta is Malta's miniscule capital, built by the Knights of St John on a peninsula that's only 600m by 1km. The city's founder decreed that it should be 'a city built by gentlemen for gentlemen', and it retains its 16th-century elegance. It may be tiny, but it's packed full of sights; when Unesco named Valletta a World Heritage site, it described it as 'one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world'. Perfectly suited for discovery on foot, our self-guided audio tour allows you to set the pace and explore at your leisure as you uncover the stories of this amazing city. To discover this fascinating city in your own time and at your own pace just download this self-guided audio tour, pop in your headphones, open the map that comes with your download and start walking.

Family Tour - The Building of Valletta

Family Tour - The Building of Valletta

Following their heroic defence of Malta during the Great Siege of 1565, the Knights of St. John set about constructing a new, impregnable fortress city, named after its founder, Jean de Valette. Over time, the new city was embellished with an impressive array of buildings, designed by some of the best European architects of the era, and filled with priceless works of art. Today, Valletta is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and elegant cities in the world. What was the story behind its construction? What were the most important buildings? Who were the important characters in its development? What was it like living there in the time of the knights? This tour is intended for families with children (ideally aged 8+) and combines education with a fun-factor, taking the form of a walk with a trained, professional guide, combining rich story-telling and a series of hands-on activities and games to enhance learning while keeping participants entertained.
