  Valletta Bastion
by sandysmith

Favorite thing: The Bastions are prominent high walls that surround Valletta forming part of its defence. The different sections of the bastions are named after saints St Michael's Bastion, St Salvatore Bastion, St Sebastian Bastion, St Barbara Bastion, and so on. These high fortifications house various secret passages, some still in use. I think this one in the pic is St Barbara's Bastion - taken on a harbour cruise trip. Clearly seen too are the arches of the Upper Barrakka Gardens, whilst bottom left hand side of the picture is the customs house.
