Founded in 1566, the Baroque city is the perfect venue for the musical festival, especially with its national theatre of Malta, which was built in 1731, and series of baroque churches and cathedrals. Valetta was European Capital of Culture in 2018. In addition to concerts in the capital, the festival will also venture to other baroque venues elsewhere in Malta.
