Malta – the main Island, whose Grand Harbour was turned red by the most famous battle in 1565. The Great Siege, was gloriously won by the Knights of the Order of St. John who then built the capital city Valletta and left a timeless legacy. More recently in 2014, The Grand Harbour was painted in red, green, blue and yellow and used as a prestigious setting to commemorate the Anniversary of a major European financial company.
The main entrance to Valletta, the City built by gentlemen for gentlemen, was given an innovative facelift by the avantgarde architect Renzo Piano who stylishly adapted the grandmaster’s La Valette architecture from the 16th century to blend smoothly into today’s fast-paced, technological world. Valletta is now a historical, vibrant city bursting with life, innovation, art and culture.
