Owner description: The Saluting Battery is one of Malta's most vibrant visitor attractions where history is brought to life daily! Located high along Valletta's eastern historic ramparts it enjoys unrivalled spectacular views of the Grand Harbour and its surrounding fortified towns. It is also perhaps the oldest saluting battery still in operation anywhere in the world. Here one can see a fully restored gun powder magazine, an artillery side-arm store, a handsome collection of original muzzle-loading artillery , ammunition and equipment and get a close-look at the saluting guns. The battery is equipped with audio-guides but guided torus in English are also available three times a day at 11.00, 12.30 And 15.00Hrs.
Useful Information: Food available for purchase, Bathroom facilities

What a wonderful visit, we coincided our visit to take in the 12.00 Gun fire. After the Gun was fired the officer gave a guided tour and history of the cannons, this was very informative, and all this for a mere 2 euros so don't stay upstairs in the gardens pay the 2 euros it's well worth it.

The re-enactors are great to watch and the tour is interesting. A good noon day diversion, the views are very good too.

Please support this historic place and re-enactment by paying the 2 euros needed to visit the Saluting Battery properly.

Piece of history reinacted at 12.00 midday. Nice to see. The views are stunning of the harbour from this height.
