|Typical Street View ~ Valletta|
|Limestone House with double balcony and single windows with shutters in bright blue|
|Corner enclosed balcony on a Palazzo in Valletta, with ornate limestone corbels.|
|Triple balcony with columns, carved Maltese Cross details on the lower panels. Internal hessian blinds a typical window treatment.|
|Overly ornate hand carved limestone. Detailing armor wear from the Knights, a central urn and fruit. The marble steps make for a very formal entryway.|
|Maltese limestone facade with high contrast red painted windows and a row of 'pregnant' wrought iron windows.|
|Waterfront development project; restored facade of an entire street of old buildings. This is where the cruise liners dock for the day.|
|This very old entryway in Mdina has intricate wrought iron work. It is painted a crisp white which provides great contrast to the Mediterranean Blue paint chosen for the door. I love the bright brass fish knockers, hardware and letterbox.|
|Century old red door opening onto a courtyard. Maltese Cross on lower panels, black wrought iron work above, and even more detailed iron work on the arch above.|
|Old farmhouse door.|
|House front in Mdina, bouganvilla creeps over a new door, made in keeping with the age of the building probably over a 100 years old. The limestone facade has been cleaned up.|
This is a small insight into my heritage, with her brave history, welcoming and smart people and rich architecture Malta should be on everyone's destination wish list!
