Things To Do In Valletta Before Heading To De Robertis
12th November, 2018
There are many things that make living in the Mediterranean paradisiacal - our sun-kissed summers, the beautiful blue sea and of course, our delicious and irresistible cuisine - the envy of the world over! Here at De Robertis restaurant we treat our guests to all things Mediterranean, thanks to our rooftop terrace and our varied, mouth-watering menu. Our team shares a few reasons why you should make our stylish restaurant in Malta not just a stop along the way, but a destination.
1. Saint James Cavalier
Art and history aficionados alike, take note! Built by the Order of St. John in the 16th Century to defend against attacks, Saint James Cavalier was one of the first buildings in the city. Fast forward to the 1990s, the government of Malta commissioned the building’s restoration, along with the rehabilitation of Valletta for cultural purposes.
The landmark now serves as a Centre for Creativity, wherein visitors can enjoy its spectacular theatre space, cinema, music room and various art galleries, where exhibitions are held regularly. Admire the beautiful mix of old and contemporary – traditional stone, mixed with glass panels and lighting.
2. The Malta Experience
Discover the turbulent history of the Maltese Islands through gripping imagery and commentary with this informative 45-minute documentary, followed by a visit to an old hospital built by the Knights of St. John.
3. St. John’s Co-Cathedral
If you like art and history, there are few places that are as impressive as St. John’s Co-Cathedral. It is an architectural gem, adorned with Baroque art of high value donated by knights and Grand Masters. Remember to check the timetable for opening hours.
4. The Upper & Lower Barrakka Gardens
Want a break from buildings and museums? Or perhaps you’re craving some stunning views of the Grand Harbour? Head to one of the Barrakka Gardens, both offering a number of statues, monuments and plants that adorn the gardens.
Get your souvenirs or simply treat yourself to some shopping in Republic street, Merchant’s street, as well as its side streets. If you’re looking for something more local, check out the market on Sunday, mainly selling clothes, shoes and jewellery falling on the cheaper side.
