The Pen and the SwordAs one of the last pieces of architecture commissioned by the Knights of Malta before fleeing, the National Library, or Bibliotheca, is a reference library containing old manuscripts, historical documents, newspapers, and rare bound books. Bring your passport to gain access to the library's collection and to wander the classical book-lined halls. When the sun is out, venture to the nearby cafes to people-watch and to admire the majestic building from a distance. Furthermore, the Museum of Archaeology is just a few minutes away.
