Location profile: The Three Cities

Set in the south of Malta lies the idyllic fortified Three Cities, namely Vittoriosa (Birgu), Senglea (Isla) and Cospicua (Bormla), rich in history as well as beautiful architecture, and a maritime paradise; also offering an insight into the authenticity of a traditional Maltese lifestyle as we know it.

Apart from being the first home to The Knights of St. John, with buildings of enviable stature, such as churches, bastions, and palaces, all of which pre-date Valletta’s historic sites, they also boast harbour inlets dating back to Phoenician Times, as well as the scene of The Great Siege in 1565. This gives an indication of the historic importance the cities hold, also making it an inspiring destination for artists and writers alike.

Now extremely sought after, and in the process of being extensively redeveloped, one finds excellent residential sales and long let rental properties all around the area, with a particular highlight being Vittoriosa waterfront, which is laced with restaurants and cafes; whilst also being a base for the much renowned and world famous Rolex Middle Sea Race during the month of October. During this spectacular time, beautiful racing yachts, which can be appreciated by all, and especially avid sailing fanatics, are docked, creating an even more vibrant atmosphere than usual with bustling streets and impressive pre-race preparations.

There are many different property types in the Three Cities that will appeal to all tastes and preferences, ranging from spectacular converted (and unconverted) Houses of Character to majestic Palazzos, many of which with strong connections to the nobility of the time, as well as intriguing historical facts and stories. By contrast, there is also a modern development, namely the highly finished St.Angelo Mansions, which is located right on the waterfront, a stone’s throw from all the action, yet offering a selection of luxury seafront apartments, many with breathtaking views towards Valletta and the marina, the latter of which is so often lined with super yachts and other spectacular boats.

This picturesque area with its friendly locals, has many highlights including the quaint bars and cafes tucked away in the pretty narrow alleys and are just a few of the reasons one cannot miss out on a visit here. If you are considering moving to our beautiful island the Three Cities comes highly recommended as a perfect location for a home away from home, ideal for all, including nautical enthusiasts and families alike.
