A new heritage site has been opened this November 2021. This is the ‘Underground Valletta’ where guided tours are being organized to explore the different uses and passageways beneath Valletta. Visitors now has the opportunity to experience the capital city more completely and appreciate some of its facets.

The underground spaces consist mainly of the tunnels that provided sanitary facilities for the new city built by the Knights, the wells and cisterns where water was stored hundreds of years ago, and the shelters dug out in the Second World War, where Valletta residents sought refuge during air raids.
