Sunday 11th October promises to be a date not to be missed for all those who have our cultural heritage at heart. As part of this year’s Birgufest, in fact, Heritage Malta will be opening the gates to parts of Fort St. Angelo in what is to be a special preview of the newly restored fort before its official opening later this year.
In 2007, Heritage Malta was entrusted with the publicly accessible parts of the Fort, which are currently in the final stages of being restored to create an unparalleled heritage experience. When finalized, the project will enable visitors to engage with the Fort’s crucial role through the ages in the defence of the Grand Harbour and the Maltese Islands. Scheduled to receive visitors by the end of this year, the St Angelo Heritage Experience will offer heritage trails, astounding vistas of the Grand Harbour, and an interactive educational experience for the whole family.
The fort will be open between 9am and 5pm, with last admission at 4:30pm.
Apart from Fort St. Angelo, this year’s Birgufest will once again be seeing Heritage Malta opening its door to the Inquisitor’s Palace and the Malta Maritime Museum at the reduced price of €2 for both sites. In fact, besides on Sunday, these two sites will also be open on Friday and Saturday from 9am till late.
