Let’s admire Selmun Palace and the surrounding areas today.
Salmun Palace was built in the 18th century. It looks like a fortified palace to give the impression of well defended area, but it was never intended to be used for military purposes.
The palace used to be rented out to the Knights of Saint John as a place to relax and hunt wild animals like rabbits that were common in the area.
You can reach Selmun Palace by car, park just next to it and enjoy a beautiful walk in the surrounding areas offering peace, quiet and amazing views.
On your way to the sea you will be passing the abandoned Fort Campbell that’s surrounded by this fence. However it is easily accessible from another side if you are the type that like to explore forgotten places…
Malta has many salt pans spread around the island. Some are still used until today and the ones that aren’t are a great hand-made attraction.
One of many things that I like about Malta is that the Maltese coast is never the same and it changes so much within just couple of hundred metres. You look on one side and it’s sharp rocks falling to the sea and you look on the other side and it’s a smooth yellow limestone.
Getting lost is one of the best ways how to find yourself. I wasn’t sure where I was going, I was just enjoying the moment, following my feeling and finding some beautiful scenarios on the way. I don’t really plan these walks (not like the rest of my life). I usually just pick an area and then simply explore it. And the great thing is that you never know where you’re going to end up and what to going to see.
Here is where I started this walk. I parked my car next to the Selmun Palace, grabbed my backpack and started exploring the area of Selmun. Happy adventuring everyone. 🙂
