Our architecture is dominated by two main foundations that have steeped the island's history. The Order of the Knights of St John and the Catholic church. In the 16th century after the 'Great Siege' of 1565, the Order transformed Malta in some of the most magnificent architectural fortifications in the world. Within the confined walls came a host of cultural and artistic Baroque buildings that are still adorned to this day. Architecture in the middle ages consisted mainly of square wayside chapels, farmhouses, rock cut grottos, catacombs and miles and miles of rubble walls which today are still evident when scouting the islands.
