In the booths of the market hall of Valletta you will find the local variety of fresh fish, meat, fruits and other delicasies. It´s fun to see how different colour or size the same ingredients have around the Europe. Though I felt sorry for the poor rabbits :(
It seems quite clear that the former inhabitants of Malta had very deliberately chosen the places for their temples. The temples form an integrated whole with the surrounding landscape.
It is also very likely that the alignment with the movements of the sun and the moon was of importance!
BirdLife Malta has once more participated at the annual British Birdwatching Fair held at Egleton Nature Reserve, Rutland Water. The fair was held between 17 and 19 August 2001. BirdLife Malta's stand attracted a lot of visitors, many of whom were very much interested in the work of the organisation. This was also a fund-raising opportunity for BirdLife Malta. BirdLife Malta manages two nature reserves in Malta namely Ghadira and Is-Simar Nature Reserves. Both these reserves are a magnet for migratory birds. The reserves also host several breeding birds of national importance like the Little Bittern, Little Ringed Plover, Moorhen and Reed Warbler.
I think Saint Ursula Street is one of the nicest streets in Valletta. It is located quite near the Upper Barakka Gardens.
Here are some photos I took while hanging around in Valletta on a peaceful Sunday afternoon. Some are view from Valletta and some are of Valletta.
This little chapel is alongside the Grand harbour road that from St. Elmo leads to the Valletta Waterfront. The chapel was first built in 1620 and then rebuilt in 1740.
There are some interestingly uniform facades along the road from St Elmo to the Valletta Waterfront, along with many other interesting things of course!
Floriana is the suburbs of Valletta. Of interest is the Wignacourt Water Tower which was linked to the aquaduct than ran all the way to Rabat.
