The Cultural Legacy of Malta & Gozo

All Maltese should be proud of their country, its past and traditions.
No other small country can boast of such a rich history, and of a cultural fabric
which makes these islands one of the most interesting and beautiful places on Earth.

The new series of books published by the Salesians of Don Bosco, The Cultural Legacy of Malta & Gozo, is a compendium of twenty photographic books about Malta’s beauty, history and culture.
