This is the entry point to Valletta. A little local dates or other treats outside on the right hand in one of kiosks for 40 cents. It’s local, and I think you should try.

Needs a good clean but impressive architecture all the same. Appropriate reminder of ties with Britain in nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

We passed through this every day we went nto Valletta town, so eventually it lost it's appeal. This descent into normalness is only to be expected as there is a wealth of other oversized monumental buildings in Malta.

Victoria Gate is another stunning site in Valletta - a city which is truly photogenic! It has been tastefully and lovingly restored, and is well worth a visit.
