The World Heritage Site of Valletta, Malta’s capital city, cannot be fully appreciated without experiencing what lies beneath it. Valletta’s network of underground shelters and tunnels became a lifeline for the city’s inhabitant enabling movement of troops, storage of grain and also water and drainage.
During World War II when 17,000 tonnes of bombs were dropped on the city, a new frenzy of digging began, expanding the network of tunnels and shelters to shield the population of Valetta as they moved underground to safety. A unique experience of defence and survival.
Visiting times to Valletta Underground are limited to Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays from 10.00 am to 13:00 pm. Learn more and book tickets here
