Safeguarding our heritage for future generations
Din l-Art Ħelwa, National Trust of Malta, is a non-governmental, not-for-profit, voluntary organisation founded in 1965 to safeguard the historic, artistic and natural heritage of Malta. Since its foundation, Din l-Art Ħelwa has restored and managed numerous cultural sites of immense historic and environmental importance.
We promote the preservation and protection of historic buildings and monuments, the character of our towns and villages, and places of natural beauty and importance and the flora and fauna of such places, especially in relation to the problems arising from modern urban development. We stimulate the enforcement of existing laws and the enactment of new ones for the protection of our natural and built heritage.
This year’s Din L-Art Ħelwa Spring Fete is due on Sunday 27th April. Volunteers are now accepting delivery of any items suitable for sale at the Msida Bastion Historic Garden, which overlooks Marsamxetto Creek. This annual fund raising event assists the heritage organisation with the maintenance costs for this historic site. Please donate bric-a-brac, confectionery, pictures and frames, plants, books, jams, toiletries, and anything More…
