The Saluting Battery is located on one of the best vantage points overlooking the Grand Harbor. Its origins are as old as those of the city itself, having been built as part of it, in 1566, by the Order of St. John. Gun salutes were fired to greet dignitaries or ships visiting the island and to mark national and religious occasions. Gun salutes were also fired to announce important naval and military victories and the succession or death of a sovereign. After a tour of the Saluting Battery, stand back and enjoy a full gun salute just for you, commemorating your welcome to Valletta!
