  • The Fort St. Angelo was the first fortification built by the Knights of St John, of Rhodes and of Malta, just arrived on the island in the early 1500. It forms part of the fortifications that made impregnable island and it has been built to protect the first outpost of the Knights, in the city of Vittoriosa (Il-Birgu). To view the Interior rooms but also patrols on the Fort and the terrace where you can enjoy a great view of the Valletta Waterfront, for Fort. St. Elmo and fortifications of other towns. The cafeteria closes at 17.00. There is the opportunity to buy a combined ticket to visit the Maritime Museum (which is just a few hundred meters from the Fort) and the Palace of the Inquisition.

  • We visited fort saint Angelo on a Sunday morning, and it was very quiet. This wonderful fort is definitely worth a visit. For its views, but also for the three nice movie setups underneath the bastion.
  • It breathes history. Great views. Video documentary rooms give you a great insight into the general history of Malta.
  • Definitely worth a visit. I was staying only 5 mins away from the fort so was easy to get to. Its amazing the history you learn & the views are amazing.
  • Newly refurbished, amazing view of the port with a vast history. Worth a visit
  • Beautiful piece of history. Very well preserved. Great view over Valletta
