With its nineteen historical 250-year-old warehouses built by Grand Master Pinto at the height of the baroque period in Malta, stretching along the water’s edge and the historical Quay Wall where the Knights of St John and European merchants used to unload their wares, the impregnable Old Power Station that serves as a testimony to the eclectic and heroic history of the Grand Harbour, the Forni Stores dating back to 1626 and constructed by Grand Master de Vilhena – the Valletta Waterfront invites you to discover its complete mix of retail, dining and leisure experiences.
The Valletta Waterfront is also the gateway to Malta’s capital city, Valletta – a city built by gentlemen for gentlemen. In fact, as one of the most successful Mediterranean ports, the Port of Valletta welcomes more than half-a-million cruise passengers into this open air museum. All this comes with an added bonus – the majestic setting within the Grand Harbour, a natural deep water port, for many thousand of years the epicentre of Malta’s maritime activity, a truly exceptional and outstanding backdrop.
