Malta is the Ideal Destination for an Arts and Culture Trip


For centuries, Europe has been an arts and cultural hub, filled with architecture and museums housing paintings stemming from the height of the Renaissance. One small Meditteranean island nation that has perfectly encapsulated the continent’s artistic heritage is Malta. Here is why you should consider visiting Malta for your next arts and culture trip.

While home to plenty of ancient artworks, Malta has decided to host a brand new arts festival starting this year. From March 13 to May 31, this festival will see artists showcase their contemporary artworks in the backdrop of ancient sites in the capital city of Valletta along with live musical performances.

Cathedral of the Assumption

Initially the site of a prehistoric settlement, this particular building became a temple under the Roman Empire before being converted into a church. While sacked by the Ottomans in 1551, it continues to stand today. What’s particularly special about the Cathedral of the Assumption is that it continues to house remains from each of these periods, allowing you to travel through time.

MUŻA National Museum of Art

If there’s one easy place to find all of Malta’s most prized artworks, it’s the MUŻA National Museum of Art. This museum is open on Mondays and Wednesdays through Sundays from 9 AM until 5 p.m. so make sure to plan your itinerary accordingly.
