Ancient

A Historic Route

We firmly believe, that the Camino Maltés, which has been accepted and endorsed by the competent authorities on historical grounds, will provide a unique experience for pilgrims to revisit a route which dates to the 16th century. Moreover the Camino Maltes complements the work of the Malta Tourism Authority in promoting Malta’s multi-millennial Christian faith and supporting related entities and activities, thus expanding the Archipelago’s potential as an international hub for faith tourism.
