Heritage Malta is inviting the public to a day of activities at Fort St Angelo in Vittoriosa. Visitors may enjoy a reduced admission to visit the fort and the new exhibition Behind Closed Doors, while gaining the opportunity to view the traditional regatta from the most strategic platform in the Grand Harbour. Special tours at the upper part of Fort St Angelo will also be available.

Born to be bold and invincible, Fort St Angelo was constructed on a hillock, at the end of the Vittoriosa peninsula to dominate the Grand Harbour.

Today, this historical military building offers unobstructed panoramic views of the Grand Harbour and the surrounding towns and villages.

The place is ideal to view the regatta, a traditional rowing event that has been held in Malta since the Middle Ages. Traditional Maltese boats such as the frejgatini, kajjikki, dg─žajjes tal-pass and tal-midalji participate in this event.

The visit at Fort St Angelo will be further enhanced with Heritage Malta’s latest exhibition Behind Closed Doors, which will remain open until September 8. It reveals intriguing narratives that took place at this military site during its occupation by the Royal Navy between 1906 and 1979.

Tomorrow, admission to Fort St Angelo, the regatta and the exhibition is reduced to €2. Members of Heritage Malta enter for free.

For this occasion, the upper part of Fort St Angelo, which is managed by the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, will also be open to the public. Tours start at 11am, noon and at 1pm. Tickets at €5 for adults, €3 for seniors and students and €1.50 for children.

Fort St Angelo will be open from 9am to 6pm, with the last admission being at 5.30pm.
