Top 5 Things To Do in Luqa

  • The Porte des Bombes is a major attraction site in Luqa. The decorative gate was constructed as part of the Valetta’s outer defence walls and is a wonderful depiction of ornamental architecture
  • For a history lesson, visit the Hypogeum of Paola. This underground temple is one of the most inspiring man-made sites made using limestone. A limited number of visitors are allowed in daily to preserve the site for future generations of travellers, so you will need to book in advance
  • The Valletta Waterfront, an 18th century baroque dock, is a spectacle renowned for its lively atmosphere. The waterfront is always bustling with activity; you can take a harbour cruise round it, or dine at one of the fine restaurants as you take in the splendid view
  • Floriana Lines is also a superb sightseeing venue, and this fortification line was built during Grand Master Antoine de Paile’s reign in the 17th century
  • Visit Malta Memorial, which was built in honour of the Commonwealth aircrew whose lives were lost during World War II. The monument is near the City Gate which is the entrance to Valletta
