As from the 1st of November, Fort St Angelo will start opening to the public on a regular basis. Apart from the site itself, visitors to the fort will also enjoy spectacular views of the Grand Harbour and Valletta.
Largely due to its strategic location, dominating the tip of Vittoriosa, the area hosting what is now known as Fort St. Angelo was always of great importance. Very often the fort played a crucial role in shaping Malta’s history, and by standing tall at the centre of one of the most formidable and spectacularly fortified natural harbour in the world, a visit promises to be a genuinely enticing and memorable experience.
The fort was inaugurated in 2015 after it benefited from a €14.5 million restoration project. The site now comprises of an interpretation centre presenting information about the fort and its history through three complementing immersive experiences and accompanying displays, namely the Centre of the Mediterranean (overview of the use of the Maltese islands by foreign powers), Key to Malta (a highlight of the advantage offered by the site of the fort for the control of the Grand Harbour) and National Icon (a tribute to the leading act played by the fort for centuries on end).
The opening hours of Fort St. Angelo will be daily between 9.00am and 5.00pm (last admission at 4.30pm). Entrance tickets will be priced at €8 for adults, €5 for seniors and students, and €3 for children. Another option would be to buy the Birgu Ticket including also admission into the Inquisitor’s Palace and the Malta Maritime Museum. The Birgu Ticket is priced at €13 for adults, €9 for seniors and students, and €7 for children.
