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.
Valletta deserves better
From a historical perspective, due importance should be given to the fact that for centuries this open air market has existed in Merchants Street. It also forms part of our collective memory of Valletta.
Save the Countryside
Din l-Art Ħelwa’s Save the Countryside campaign aims to show the relevance of biodiversity and the countryside to our daily lives in Malta and for future generations.
