Malta is known for astonishing architecture and a rich history possibly dating all the way back to the Stone Age. The picturesque architecture features colors that beautifully contrast the deep blue Mediterranean Sea. The island’s historical significance can be traced back to its prime location, many battles were fought there and control of the island changed at least nine times. Malta is home to several historical monuments, some of the oldest standing structures in the world and nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
