16 Pretty Sliema Buildings That Will Make You Smile

Who you calling ugly?


Anyone who's ever taken the time to walk through the residential streets of Sliema and wandered round corners they've never explored before will take you up on the argument that Sliema has been ruined by overdevelopment. 

The Sliema Heritage Society is non-profit organisation that aims to educate and inspire not only Sliema residents, but a whole new audience of people who might not have taken a huge interest in their surrounds before to be more aware of the beauty in the older buildings, and to stand up for their protection and preservation. 

Sliema has so much more to offer than its modern apartment blocks. Here's just a little proof that Sliema can do "quaint" just as well as the rest.
