Valletta in a nutshell

Valletta is the capital of Malta. The city was founded in the middle of the sixteenth century by the Knights Hospitaller, a medieval Catholic military order. The city is located between two harbours (Marsamxett Harbour on the left and Grand Harbour on the right) and is home to six thousand people. Recognising its historical and cultural significance, UNESCO declared Valletta a World Heritage Site in 1980 (the city boasts more than 300 monuments packed in half a square kilometre / 0.21 sq mi).

Leonidas Argyros

A grumpy man with a PhD. He is fascinated by words; when he sees them forming beautiful sentences he feels like an apprentice wizard who just produced fancy potions out of cauldrons full of frog legs and tears of bats. In his spare time he roams about town or watches anything produced and narrated by Sir David Attenborough, an inexhaustible source of similes. In Canada, he learned to love the cold, but he is much happier working in Athens.
