Over the years, our tours have become a very popular educational and cultural experience for those interested in knowing more about past traditions, techniques used in construction, the origins of our localities, practices in urban planning and more.

The tour is led by professionals in the fields of heritage planning and conservation.

This year, the tour will focus on the locality of Floriana, also known as Citta’ Vilhena. The locality of Floriana which dates back to 1634, offers an immense heritage experience with unravelling details about its planning aspect. Floriana has no less than 15 gardens. The buildings, churches and monuments in this locality provide an insight into Malta’s political and social past from the time of the Knights of St John to the present day.
