The balconies are amongst the first characteristics of Malta you notice. The elegant wooden balconies of Valletta (the capital city of Malta) were used as a view point for families to catch up on the business of the street below. Today in Valletta you will see baskets lowered from balconies for the baker to pop in a loaf of bread. The finest and longest balcony is that of the Grand Master’s palace in Valletta. It stretches around corners and along the side street walls.
