Description

If there ever were a place that has escaped the ravages of development and succeeded in keeping its original character, Birgu is that place. Birgu is a small harbor city with a rich history. Embark on a 2-hour guided walking tour to discover this unique character with the help of an expert guide.  Meet your guide near the berthing place of the ferry in Cospicua. Listen to a fascinating introduction to the history of the 3 cities, known as The Cradle of Maltese. Proceed then on foot toward the city’s 3 gates, passing massive walls and arriving in the center of the maritime town.  Your guide will lead the group toward the historic center known as the Collachio, the main quarters of the Knights of Malta prior to the building of the new city, Valletta. Here, walk through pretty alleys along the Auberges of the Knights, the Inquisitors Palace, and through the famous Grand Harbour, which has historically provided a shelter for whomever had control over the Maltese Islands.  Along the way, your guide will offer fascinating insight into the town’s history, the story of Malta, and the legends of the knights, while you soak up the unmatched beauty of the area.
