Wherever you look in Malta, you will see a variety of balconies. Some are made of wood and usually enclosed (see the various street scenes) while others are created by combining designs made out of metal. The Maltese love to spend part of their day sitting in their balconies. They enjoy the fresh air and seeing the activities outside their home. And, there is usually a cat or a dog enjoying the outside with them.
