2012 June Malta

Fort St. Angelo

I have had a possibility to see Fort St Angelo before it was closed for restoration for 3 years.
This fort is located in Birgu at the end of harbour, near the Casino the Venecia.
It was a sunny day in June 2012 but many Maltese people decided to go there. The entrance was free and every 30 min there was a guided tour. I was so lucky – when I arrived it was 5 min to next tour the one in English. There was a lot of people but the guide was good. Inside the fort was the old building, residence of Maltese knights and a small chapel. Near this chapel Caravaggio was imprisoned. In one of the old building was a multimedia presentation of the fort.

In three years time I hope to see and show how the fort will have changed.
