Frank Salt Real Estate organised the first of a series of public lectures on Valletta
Cultural enthusiasts who hold Valletta at heart filled up the Aula Magna of the Old University Building in Valletta for the first of a series of public lectures organized by Frank Salt Real Estate exploring the treasures of our capital city. The lectures were delivered by Architect Edward Said who took the audience through the facts and myths on subterranean Valletta and by Dr. Joan Abela whose lecture brought to light Valletta’s role as Christendom’s capital for human trafficking in the 16th and 17th century, from the scrutiny of various notarial documents found at the Notarial Archives.

The public lectures are an initiative of Frank Salt Real Estate through its recently established Valletta Heritage Property division, with the input of renowned archeologist, Dr Timmy Gambin.

The first lecture by Architect Said illustrated the subterranean dimension of Valletta, exploring it chronologically, through which the audience were taken through an underground journey starting from the time when Mount Sceberras was virgin land right up to the rediscovery of tunnels in the last few years. This was followed by a lecture by Notary Joan Abela, who explained the merits of the Notarial Archives in shedding light on an ancient world which would have been otherwise lost to present day generations and that was part of everyday life in Malta’s vibrant port cities.

Thanks to the investments made in the past years, Valletta is becoming ever more attractive, particularly when it comes to the real estate market. In line with this, Frank Salt Real Estate has stepped up its efforts to raise awareness of the city’s rich heritage. “People who take an interest in buying a property in Valletta, do so for much more than brick and mortar.” stated Mr. Frank Salt, Company Chairman. “They understand the core value of being part of this magical place. They are intrigued by its ornate architecture, rich history yet a modern cosmopolitan vibe. They know that taking up a residence in Valletta is not just about buying a home or property, but taking up a lifestyle.” This is where Frank Salt Real Estate’s Valletta Heritage property consultants can assist. Over the last couple of months its team has put together a considerable list of properties available for sale and to let around Valletta. Some are ready to move into. Others require moderate or considerable restructuring and modernization – however with massive potential once complete.
