Sightseeing in St Julians - what to see. Complete travel guide

St. Julians St. Julian's is a small town in Malta located not far away from the country’s capital, Valletta. You can see the outline of the capital from the town’s embankment. This place is particularly popular in the evening, when the flickering lights of Valletta attract both visitors and locals. St. Julian's was built around once lonely old St. Julian Church and Spinola Palace designed by the noble Italian knight. Steadily new people settled in the city; wealthy people started choosing this place for their rest and started coming here more often, gradually turning St. Julian’s into a resort.
Nowadays St. Julian’s is a popular entertainment center of Malta, and its major trading center. All entertainments are mostly focused on youth or middle-aged tourists. Here tourists can visit Quarter Paceville, which is famous for its nightlife and diverse range of services and various recreational facilities. Here you can attend many discos, bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and casinos, play bowling or visit a giant movie theater with 15 halls.
The historic district of the city is the location of magnificent ancient monuments and fortifications – here you will see a watch tower of St. George located next to barracks, old coastal fortifications, and main architectural places of interest – Dragonara and Spinola palaces, the Church of Immaculate Conception, St. Julian Church, Church of the Virgin Mary – Mother, Church of St. Rita, Church of Saint Clara, and Millennium Chapel.

Spinola Bay, St Julians, Malta, from the pool deck of the Juliani Hotel Dragonera casino has become an original symbol of the city. It was opened in 1964 and is the oldest casino in Malta.

It employs about 200 slot machines. One of the main features of the casino is an automatic roulette, designed for 12 seats.
One of the most beautiful and quiet places in the city is Spinola Bay. This area is notable for lack of dense buildings, so there is nothing to prevent vacationers from admiring the bay and the boats of locals moored at the shore.
