Abstract: One element in the heritage around us is constituted by the numerous sites which evoke life from long ago. One such heritage site is the fortified city. In the Maltese Islands, although not so numerous, such fortified cities do exist, and these offer much opportunity for the young and not so young to learn about a particular type of past. In modern times these heritage sites still offer snapshots of days gone and, though contemporary elements have now become an integral part of their historical texture, they are still important centres for the transmission of historical, social, architectural, and cultural education to both students and tourists who visit them.
