  • Now that the refurbishment is complete this is a stunning place to visit. AV exhibits are good and the views from the top well worth the climb.  more »
  • The tour of the castle was quite ok and informative, as it had a super view of Valletta. However the Castle came out somewhat abandoned and empty, and there was nothing, what makes your visit definitely worthwhile.

  • The fort commands a spectacular location over the Grand Harbour of Malta and even for this reason alone one should visit this place. The site is very interesting and covers hundreds of years of history and military fortifications. It would be nice to have audio guides to help one understand what the various structures are. The cafe is also a good place to stop and have a drink although some umbrellas could be added to shelter from the scorching summer sun.
  • It was one of the stops of a Grand Harbour boat tour. Can't recommend enough. Fantastic view, very interesting, historical places, relaxed atmosphere. This Fort is a well preserved, historical building. Well worth the time and effort. You'd even find good restaurants nearby.
  • Fort San Anglo was the original home to the Knights of Malta until the city of Valletta and its fortifications were built. The city of Birgu (Victoria) at the entrance to the fort is a splendid collection of historic buildings, narrow streets, squares, cafes and restaurants. The view of Valletta from the fort is excellent! Easy access by bus or car from Valletta
  • Fantastic views from all angles on lots if different levels. A good fort to visit of the weather is nice. Not much indoors so nice to enjoy the weather and read about the fort. The cafe also has great views.
  • The view from the top is good, and I visited on a day with live enactment which happens a couple of times a year. Entrance fee 8€, a combination ticket (valid for a couple of other museums around as well) for 12€. Overall a pleasant experience. But Malta is full of forts, no need to get out all the way here if you are pressed with time. In fact, probably the view of this fort from the Valletta side is enough for most people.
