Malta may only be a small island nation (at 316 square km), but if you look carefully you will note that Malta wears big boots. These are a few interesting facts about Malta.
The name “Malta” is said to have been derived from:
Malta hosts 75 local village feasts (or ‘festas’) between June and September, which is a festivity in honour of the town’s patron saint and is originally a religious celebration. The three phrases that summarise such events are fireworks, religious processions and band marches. A few local tour operators organise trips to some of the more popularly celebrated feasts or festa.
The Knights of St John of Jerusalem were given control over Malta in 1530 by Charles V of Spain, and left their mark on the island, until capitulating to Napoleon’s advancement in 1798. The Knights of Malta are most remembered for successfully defending the island against the Ottomans during The Great Siege of 1565. The eight point Crusade cross often associated with the Knights of Malta later became known as the Maltese Cross.
