Valletta is the tiny capital of the Mediterranean island nation of Malta.
The walled city was established in the 1500s on a peninsula by the Knights of St. John, a Roman Catholic order.
It’s known for museums, palaces and grand churches. Baroque landmarks include St. John’s Co-Cathedral, whose opulent interior is home to the Caravaggio masterpiece "The Beheading of Saint John."
