Tourists warned after taking pictures of illegal Victoria Lines terrace
Tourists at the Victoria Lines had an ugly experience recently when they were threatened for taking photos of an illegal terrace that remains in place despite two enforcement notices.
The group came across the building while walking in the countryside near Rabat. The man who was leading the group said they were warned by a person at the building to stop taking photos and not to get too close.
Built by the British in the late 19th century, the Victoria Lines are defensive fortifications dividing the north of Malta from the south.
Two enforcement notices were issued, in March 1996 over the terrace, and in August 2011 for the fixing of a steel gate and the construction of a low limestone wall without planning permission.
