The Saluting Battery is one of Malta’s most popular attractions where history is brought to life daily. A noon-day gun is still operated daily at this site to mark the passage of mid-day as done for centuries past.
The Saluting Battery served both as a defensive and ceremonial platform from where dignitaries and visiting dignitaries to the island were greeted with gun fire. It also doubled as the official public time marker for the island with the firing of three cannon at sunrise, noon and sunset. Apart from the daily noon-day gun re-enactment, this attraction includes a vast collection of historic artillery stretching some 300 years, an audiovisual presentation and an inter-active guided tour
These Gardens are an ideal venue for an evening standup cocktail party or reception as the garden boasts remarkable views of the Grand Harbour and The Three Cities all lit up in all their glory by Night.
