An Afternoon in Vittoriosa

I love the colors in Malta.

We took a water taxi from Valletta to Birgu (Vittoriosa), an old city on the south side of the Grand Harbour. We didn’t explore much of this area, but the route from the waterfront to where we ate lunch, Tal-Petut, was lovely.

Churches. Steps and statues. Decorative balconies and beautiful detailing around windows. I especially like the doors and bright pops of color against all the worn walls and light facades.

  6. Is there a reason behind the colored doors or is it merely decorative?

  8. Beautiful. I love their colorful take on entries and exits. Even the iron grating looks more friendly–all scrolled and curlicued. :o) I always respond eagerly to anything that suggests ‘confectionary’…
