Din L-art Helwa


Din L-art Helwa is an organization that safeguards 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.



Din L-art Helwa promotes interest in the preservation of Malta’s cultural and natural heritage.  They do this through awareness campaigns and educational activities.  Their main focus is to educate citizens against the dangers that urban development has on their cultural heritage and about the importance of their cultural heritage.


Din L-art Helwa works very much in advocacy.  They stimulate the enforcement and creation of laws that protect the cultural heritage of Malta.  They work with policy makers in order to ensure that laws are bothe created and enforced.  They also advocate for the protections of individual sites and ensure their designation as national heritage sites that cannot be destroyed and need protection.


The organization also takes care of the management of some sites.  They believe that through demonstrating how to properly manage a cultural site, this can educate the public on the importance of their cultural sites.
