Located near Sicily, Malta lies to the north east of Tunisia, with Gibraltar to the west. Locals speak Maltese and English and the island has a rich history of different powers that have ruled the island.
In addition, Malta has a tradition of mysterious legends, including the Maltese Falcon and the Knights of St John, also known as the Knights of Malta who wear black gowns adorned with the white Maltese cross. The Maltese falcon, of the film fame, is actually the peregrine falcon and now extinct in Malta, although it breeds elsewhere.
