Fort St Elmo - National War Museum, Valletta: 13 reviews and 25 photos
Just along from Sacra Infermeria is the massive sturcture of Fort St Elmo. This occupies the whole tip of the promentory and encompasses the National War Museum (seperate entry) and the Fort St Elmo Museum.
Because the fort is also used these days as the national police academy, entrance is limited to weekends (but we didn't go in, even though it was Sunday) and costs a mere 1LM. Once inside, you can also take a guided tour for free! It all seems quite a bargain.
Just for those history fans, the fort was built in 1552 in only 6 months - quite incredible really - and was incorporated into Valletta in 1570.
