Senglea is the smallest of the Three Cities in the Cottonera. It is situated on a peninsula protruding into the Grand Harbor, facing the charming walled city of Valletta. I had never heard of Senglea, Malta before my visit there last week.
We were on Airbnb looking for places to stay and we ran across this amazing apartment, in a beautiful location, and at a great price. The apartment was beyond our expectations (you can see the apartment HERE) and the neighborhood was perfect.
Come explore the neighborhood with me at Southern Blue Traveler.
Valletta was built by the knights of St John on a tiny peninsula. It retains it’s 16th century elegance and has been described as on of the most concentrated historic areas in the world. The history alone makes it a place worth visiting but Valletta has so much more to offer. The people are friendly, the food is amazing, the shopping is great, and the scenery is awe inspiring.
The small and picturesque fishing village of Marsaxlokk (pronounced marsa-schlock – meaning Southern Port) is located in the South Eastern part of Malta.
When searching for sites to visit while in Malta, Marsaxlokk came up in every search. I knew the moment I saw photos of the colorful, traditional Maltese fishing boats I had to see it for myself.
I just returned from my European vacation and it was amazing! I visited three countries – Barcelona, Rome,and Malta. I have been to Barcelona and Rome but Malta was a new destination and I was excited to visit this beautiful Mediterranean island.
