  Freedom Monument
by steventilly

This commemorates the handing over of power from the British to the Maltese in 1979. On top of this artificial wooded hillock stands a statue of a British officer bidding farewell to a Maltese local. The monument was designed by Dom Mintoff, the then Maltese Prime Minister who had campaigned for a free Malta.
This tip illustrates the benefit of research and reading in advance. I didn?t ? I just went to wander ? and I didn?t know what this was until I got back home, in fact it was fortunate that I even got a picture of it.
