Donegal

The month of October arrives and, with it, the fall that leaves behind a summer in which Europe has been calcined without remedy because of global warming that advances every decade, every five years, every year. The leaves of the trees take a coppery color and, almost imperceptibly, the days seem to be shortened and the long-sleeved garments are occupying the top of the drawers of our closets.

This, to me, is a blessing. 15 years ago I have a lymphatic problem that makes me run away from high temperatures and autumn and spring have since become my favorite seasons.

But You should also like autumn if you are a traveler looking for offers and beautiful places what to visit without the handicap of the tourist agglomerations. Prices fall and offers flood the media.

If you have a few days off, there are several European cities whose autumn colors will attract you without remedy. Here are some ideas for this fall 2015.

Malt

Valletta Malta

This small island in the Mediterranean, between Europe and Africa, keeps great natural and historical treasures.

At this time of year the temperatures are still pleasant and its coves and beaches, along with the narrow tangled streets of Valletta, are free from the hordes of tourists who take them to assault every summer.

Enjoy the Beaches of crystalline waters and golden sands, such as Birzebbugia, Buggibba or Gnejna Bay on the island of Malta or those of the lonely Gozo.

In La Valletta you can breathe its Templar past in every corner. The Knights of the Order of Malta settled for several centuries in the archipelago and the history books remember their heroic resistance during the siege of the Turks between May and September 1565. They say that this battle, in which the Turkish fleet made the greater maritime deployment that would occur until the D-day of 1944, changed the sign of religious wars between Christians and the Turkish sultan.

As a reward for their courage and strength, the Christian kings rewarded the Knights of the order with large sums of gold and money, being able to build hospitals, palaces, churches and fortifications that give, today, that imperial air to the capital from Malta.
