Step back in time for just €2! Fort St Angelo to open at reduced price on Victory Day
Heritage Malta has even prepared a whole programme of activities at the Fort!

It’s easy to take Malta’s rich history for granted when you’ve been living on the island for your whole life – but when an opportunity arises to visit one of the country’s many historical sites, it would be silly not to take it on.

On the 8th September, that is, Victory Day, Heritage Malta will be opening the doors of Birgu’s iconic Fort St Angelo for just €2.

But wait! This won’t be like any other visit...

That’s right. On Victory Day, Fort St Angelo’s visitors will also be able to check out the upper parts of the fort which are administered by the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

And that’s not even half of it!

To commemorate Victory Day, Heritage Malta has prepared a whole programme of activities at the Fort.

Doors will open at 9am, and at 10am mass will be held at the Chapel of the Nativity of the Virgin. At 11am, there will be a walk from the aforementioned chapel to the Great Siege monument, where the National Festivities Committee will commemorate the victory of the historic Great Siege

Fort St Angelo will remain open to the public at a reduced price even after the festivities have ended – but don’t leave it to the last minute…

Last admissions to the fort will be let in at 4:30pm, with doors closing at 5pm.

Reduced admission tickets may only be purchased at the door. Check out Heritage Malta’s website for more information.
