The first stone of the Valletta was laid in 1566. After that, many followed it form the most modern city in Europe in the 16th century. At the time, its main charm lay, not only in its honey-colored streets or panoramic views of the Grand Harbour, but in that Valletta did not smell! as it was built on a system of pipes which made it the dream city of European nobility.
The Baroque also came to Malta by the Order of St. John. The city modernizes in the new style losing its former air of war fortress. The buildings rise on one floor and overlap baroque facades that still today observe us from the large portals of the hostels and properties of the knights.
