New Parliament Building
For the last time in 2017, Flimkien għal Ambjent Aħjar invites you to take a walk around the capital, seeing it as you have never seen it before and discovering its dark secrets. Hear stories of murder, robberies from churches, executions and fraud carried out by important people.
The Royal Opera House seems to have been built under an unlucky star – what actually happened during its first years? Who stole from a Gudja church and left the chalice in another church in Valletta? What happened to the sculptor of one of the beautiful palaces of Valletta? Who was the noble person who defrauded the local governing body? Who abused of the ecclesiastical sanctuary and how did the authorities react?
These are some of the dark stories that abound in the streets of Valletta. Behind the beautiful facades of churches and palaces there are other tales to be told.
Don’t miss this unique tour to be given by a top expert, Vincent Zammit and organised by one of Malta’s leading heritage organisations. This tour which combines history, humour and tales of the unexpected, will take you past the site of the Royal Opera House, the Grand Master’s Palace and Valletta’s main churches and palaces.
Friday 24th MARCH, 6:30pm.
Meeting point: Valletta Entrance, New Parliament
