Wirt Naturali

Although heavily exploited by humans for centuries on end, the Maltese Islands consist of important ecosystems mostly because of their isolation from the African and European continents. This leads to unique specialisation and to the evolution of distinctive species. Indeed, Malta, Gozo, Comino, Filfla and St Paul’s Islands, together with a handful of rocks and stacks, support a variety of endemic flora and fauna species.

The 268-year stay of the Knights of St John (1530-1798) had a dramatic and lasting effect on the Maltese Islands, in particular the architectural heritage. Besides crafting an impressive list of palatial and religious compounds, they left no stone unturned to defend the Islands from Ottoman hostilities. Indeed, they invested huge amounts of resources to defend the main settlement areas with impregnable lines of fortifications. These include the seven walled towns (Valletta, Floriana, Vittoriosa, Senglea, Cospicua, Mdina and the Gozo Citadel), and five bold fortresses (Fort St Angelo, Fort St Elmo, Fort Ricasoli, Fort Manoel and Fort Chambray).
