3. History and Culture

Prior to 1800, it was a small fishing village located around Balluta and Spinola Bays. Only a handful of structures existed – the Spinola Palace, an old parish church, a few fishermen’s huts, and a few farmhouses in the rural areas. Currently, the city is highly vibrant, with an active nightlife, fantastic shopping options, stunning beaches, and remarkable dining choices.

Portomosao was a groundbreaking waterfront development that was inaugurated in Malta in 1999, which was the first of its kind, gaining significant public attention. Spinola Development Co. Ltd. initiated the multi-million project in 1996. A hitherto new concept for Malta, Portomaso represents a landmark in real estate entrepreneurship. It adds a new dimension to living standards in Malta, attracting demand from the upper-bracket visitor.
