An interesting mix of customs and traditions that make the Maltese people truly unique. How can one best describe Maltese Culture? In order to try to understand why the Maltese people are how they are today, one must look back to history for answers. Picture this … A small seemingly defenseless island in the middle of the Mediterranean.
An island which saw one ruler after another, one nation after another, one empire after another invade or attempt to invade its shores. A nation that fought hard to keep aggressors away, sometimes succeeding, other times failing. A people that had to endure several years of foreign rule before it could finally claim independence and govern its own country.
