Sights in Birzebbugia

There isn’t much to see in Birzebbuga. Most of the sights, like the three batteries, are too old or collapsed. The church and the Pretty Bay (Ramla ta’Birzebbuga) are the two nicest attractions in Birzebbuga. However, compared with other churches in Malta it’s quite simple and small.

Vittoriosa (Birgu)

Vittoriosa (Birgu) is probably the nicest of the three peninsulas southwards of Valletta. The city was the first settlement around this area. When the Knights of St. John arrived in Malta in 1530 they set up camp in Vittoriosa and started to upgrade the fortifications, including the Fort St. Angelo. After the Great Siege of 1565 they moved to Valletta. Birgu has nowadays a population of 3000 and the fortifications are as impressive as those of Valletta. Behind every corner you can discover something new. The best way to enter the city is through the ‘Couvre Porte’ which was restored in 2002. Above is a modern gate which breaks through the fortification of the ‘Poste de Provence’ and is used as a road for cars.

Valletta - Capital City of Malta

Valletta (7100 inhabitants) is a unique city. She lies on a peninsula in western Malta. The city possesses enormous fortification. The building of the city started in 1566 and was finished only 10 years after. Named after the Grand Master Jean Parisot de la Vallette.
