MALTA ~Senglea~

And another breathtaking view..
Malta is a small island a few hundred kilometers south of Italy and a stone's throw away from North Africa. Its wind-swept landscapes and ancient towns make it a unique and mystical place to visit, and it houses some of the oldest known ruins in the world...Golden Mediterranean sunshine, azure seas, friendly locals...
...Maybe a tip for a holiday this summer??It is certainly on top of my "wishlist"!!:DThanks again Brian!!

Lovely stamp too!Painting (Norman and Hohenstaufen Period) Issued 29 Dec 2009. This is my fifth card from Malta and none of the cards are postmarked...
Senglea lies on a "tongue" of land extending towards Valletta in the heart of Grand Harbour. Togheter with its neighbouring cities Birgu (Vittoriosa) and Bormla (Cospicua) the Three Cities, as they came to be known, became the target during the island's bleakest days in its long history; the Great Siege of 1565 and the heavy air attacks during World War II.
