The Secret Malta
It’s been awhile since we last spoke about this wondrous place at the crossroads of cultures, but today we are going to remember The Secret Malta, with all its unknown attractions and hidden gems.
Hosted by the RAF aerodrome, the Aviation Museum run by an NGO is an interesting place to visit if you are the least bit interested in plans and humans’ history with flying. Just because it belongs to an NGO
doesn’t mean it looks lame and shabby, quite the opposite! The setting and info material are awesome and kids love the place! Among the most admired artifacts, we can mention a Second World War Spitfire and Hawker Hurricane.
Would you like to visit a catacomb? (And get out of it sooner or later… just kidding!) Well, Malta being a place with such an old history, you can visit the Al Saflieni Hypogeum, an underground labyrinth dating back to neolithic times 6000 years ago or more. Some workers stumbled upon the place in 1902. Since then, it has been restored and included in the tourist circuit and also in the UNESCO World Heritage legacy.
Did you actually know that Popeye’s Village rests in Malta? While we can’t claim for certain that Popeye really did exist, we do know that the old movie set of the 1980 movie featuring the popular sailorman is located in a village on the island. The relics have been turned into a real tourist attraction. Add this to the lovely weather and beautiful endless sea and you’ve got yourselves a wonderful day trip!
The Mnajdra temple is a Stone Age solar relic. Dating back to the 4th millennium BC, it is one of the oldest worshiping sites in the world.
So you might be wondering how to see all these places. I would recommend a Malta tour; the staff is extremely nice and the service is totally flexible.
