Thanks to its position at the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, Malta has been a crossroad of civilizations whose traces are still visible today: from the mysterious megalithic temples, older than the Pyramids, to the Palaces of the Order of St John and Caravaggio’s masterpieces, housed in the sublime baroque St John’s Co-Cathedral in Valletta.
The success of the Malta Culture Guide iPhone app, with more than 35.000 downloads, has encouraged the Malta Tourism Authority to widen its audience by offering an Android version and a website optimized for both desktop and mobile users.
On www.maltacultureguide.com tourists and art lovers can find full info and images of 46 cultural highlights in Malta and Gozo, as well as videos and podcasts to delve into the rich Maltese cultural Heritage. The website and apps are translated in 4 languages: English, Italian, French and German.
The Malta Tourism Authority’s CEO Mr. Josef Formosa Gauci, commenting on these latest additions said: “The Malta Culture Guide helps independent travellers to make the most of their time in Malta. By offering two apps and a mobile-optimized website we are covering virtually 100% of our online and mobile audience, and we are responding to the growing interest in Maltese Cultural Heritage, in anticipation of Valletta being the European Capital of Culture 2018”.
