Overview

The city of Vittoriosa, or Birgu as it is known by the Maltese, is the oldest settlement in the Grand Harbour area. This beautiful maritime city offers an intriguing insight into Malta and its history. Whether for its historic aspect, with its many palaces, churches and museums, or simply to stroll along the marina or visiting one of its numerous wine bars, Vittoriosa is definitely worth a visit.
Ideally situated for safe anchorage, the area has been occupied since prehistoric times, developing strong connections with maritime, mercantile and military activities over the centuries. When the Order of St. John came to Malta, the Knights chose Birgu as their seat, turning it into a magnificent fortified city that was able to withstand the brutal siege of 1565. It was this remarkable victory that saw the city awarded the name ‘Città Vittoriosa'. During British rule, the city also hosted the British Royal Navy, and despite widespread destruction brought on by World War Two, Vittoriosa has risen again, to become one of the main tourist attractions on the island.
You'll be walking past the most notable sites in Vittoriosa:
The Couvre Porte area
The Dominican Priory and Church of the Annunciation
The Inquisitors’ Palace
The Collacchio
The Auberges of the Knights
The former Sacra Infermeria

Fort St. Angelo
...and much more!
