Reduced price at Fort St Angelo for the 7th April traditional Regatta

On 7th April Fort St Angelo will open for a reduced price of €2 offering a unique platform from where enthusiasts of the traditional regatta can follow the races from the fort’s impressive bastions.

With its strategic position at the tip of Vittoriosa, the magnificent Fort St Angelo provides not only a good view of the race but also an imposing backdrop to the sleek and colourful Maltese boats.

The regatta is a traditional rowing event and is held twice yearly in the Grand Harbour. The programme starts at 1.00pm and promises five hours of spectacle with the best crews forming part of the rowing teams from seven different cities. The rowers participate in ten races under two different categories using typical traditional Maltese boats such as ‘frejgatini’, ‘kajjikki’ and ‘dgħajjes tal-pass’ and ‘tal-midalji’.

During the day members of the Malta Historical Fencing Association will also be present to show off their skills. On the day visitors will also have the opportunity to visit the upper part of Fort St. Angelo, managed by the Sovereign Military Order of Malta at an additional cost. Apart from the normal guided tour held every day at 11.00am, another two extra guided tours will be organised on the day, one starting at 12.00pm and the other at 1.00pm. Tickets for these guided tours cost €5 (adults), €3 (students and seniors), and €1.50 (children). Maximum attendance for each tour is 50 people.

Fort St. Angelo will be open between 9.00am and 6.00pm, last entry at 5.30pm.
