Enjoyed our visit. A pleasant and interesting attraction. Would recommend. Got the bus there from Valletta which takes time. Got the water taxi back to Valletta for €2 which was well worth it.

Wonderful period fortification with spectacular views of the harbor. The audio visual displays are very good. Can get blistering hot among all the stone.

As far as I know, the €13.4 million restoration program is nearing completion but not yet complete. I believe a "St Angelo Experience" is planned for 2016 or later, but in the meantime, there is, I believe, only very limited... More
