Valletta, Malta

Fort St. Elmo is one of the most significant fortifications in the Grand Harbour area. The fort’s predecessor (also referred to as Fort St. Elmo) played a key role in the defeat of the Ottoman army during the Great Siege of Malta in 1565, despite having been reduced to rubble.

While the construction of Valletta  started the following year, Fort St. Elmo was rebuilt and integrated with Valletta’s fortifications.

The upper part of the fort was restored between 2009 and 2015 and has become a popular point of interest in the capital, also hosting the National War Museum within some of the barracks.
