Malta and Gozo: Introduction
As an island with a rich history and culture, Malta offers great value for money for British holidaymakers. Like all Mediterranean islands, Malta has a fantastic climate and year-round sunshine. But this is only one reason to visit. Whilst it may only be a small island, Malta has a busy year-long festivals calendar where visitors are always welcome, so there’s always something happening to liven up your holiday.
Religion plays an important part in island life, and Saints’ Feast days are extremely common. Some holy days are even national holidays, such as the feast of Santa Marija in mid-August. There are also plenty of non-religious festivals too, such as Il Vitorja, or Victory Day, on 8 September. This day commemorates historic military victories in Malta’s history, and originated after the end of the Great Siege of 1565. The festival consists of various state ceremonies, including a military parade, followed by a fiercely-contested rowing regatta in Valetta’s Grand Harbour. There is also a chocolate festival in Hamrun in October, as well as an international jazz festival between 19-21 July.
Gozo, one of the smaller islands in the Maltese archipelago, is one of the most unique places in the Mediterranean. Here, you can visit the prehistoric Megalithic Temples, seven of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Dating from 3600-3000 BC, they’re the oldest free-standing structures on the planet – older even than the Egyptian pyramids! More rural than Malta, Gozo is an island of rolling hills, picturesque towns and beautiful churches. By booking a Monarch villa holiday on this wonderful island, your Maltese holidays will be able to enjoy unspoilt peace and serenity.
