We pulled into the Valletta harbor early in the morning. The sun was just breaking through and I got some great images of the sunrise.
Today, we are on our special tour where we will see Mdina and then have lunch with a small group at the Palazzo Parisio Estate of Scicluna Family. We will see the house and gardens (future posts). We will finish the day with about an hour walking around the city center of Valletta.
Some of the fortifications are Fort Ricasoli – the large fortification on the island of Malta at the entrance of the harbor. The fort was built by the Knights of Malta between 1670 and 1693.
When the Knights of Malta arrived in Malta in 1530, they chose to settle in Birgu, and Fort St Angelo became the seat of the Grand Master, which included the refurbishing of the Castellan’s House and St. Anne’s Chapel.
