St Paulís Street --- VALLETTA

By Edcat55
GEAR NIKON D7100
SIGMA 8 TO 16


St Paulís Street has remained a bit of a backwater despite being a useful traffic thoroughfare in an increasingly pedestrianised Valletta. It lives in the shadow of its wider, bustling neighbours Merchant Street and Republic Street. However, its faded glory has made it all the more alluring, and it is now seeing an influx of new life.

St Paulís Street is now Ďdes resí and up and coming; the kind of street to get real estate agents and speculators drooling over its potential as a historic gem and time capsule. Boutique and bijou hotels, design firms, and renovated shops offering speciality, artisinal products are springing up week by week; a good indication that St Paulís Street is a changing, and fast.

For now though, St Paulís Street is a more old than new, and for a few more years yet will remain a time warp. It is home of course to numerous magnificent, historic buildings Ė from palazzini or grand patriciansí homes and the old university building to the covered market which was modeled on Les Halles in Paris. It houses also one of the islandís most famed festas Ė that of St Paulís Shipwreck church, held in February.

Its the oldness that gives the charm. I hope that does not change.

Lovely if busy old street, with lots of Maltese balconies. I like the doctor's red scooter!
