Sails on the Horizon

Heritage Malta is organising a guided tour of Fort St Elmo during which visitors will have the opportunity to explore the fort and view the start of this year’s Middle Sea Race from the fort’s majestic bastions.

The guided tour of Fort St Elmo starts at 9.00am. The fort occupies a strategic position at the tip of the Sceberras peninsula, keeping watch over the mouths of the Grand Harbour and Marsamxett Harbour. Fort St Elmo was built in 1552, but over centuries additions and alterations were carried out to the fort, the latest during the British Period.

Light refreshments will be served while watching the fleet participating in the Middle Sea Race sailing out of the Grand Harbour from vantage points inside the fort. Boats will sail to Sicily, the Aeolian Islands (including Stromboli), the Egadi Islands, Pantelleria and Lampedusa, through the South Comino channel, keeping Malta to starboard, to the finish line in Marsaxmett Harbour.

This event will be held on Saturday 21st October. Tickets, at €12 for adults and €10 for HM members, seniors and children, are available from all Heritage Malta museums and sites, & ONLINE
