About the Event
You'll discover how the ghost of 16th Century knight Oliver Starkey haunted a house in the 1990s - and how he was eventually persuaded to stop disturbing the neighbours. You'll also hear the shocking letter that a lovesick man sent to his lover shortly before he murdered her. Learn why over a hundred boys entered a church but never came out; the truth about Jean de Valette, the founder of Malta's capital city; and the hidden meanings behind a grotesque statue that watches over the people in Valletta, right above their heads. All this, and more, on the Dark History of Valletta tour.
The tour will be conducted by Mario, a licensed tourist guide who has spent years studying
the darker side of Malta's history
