Malta (South Eastern Region) – Birgu – Fort St. Angelo (Sally Port)

This is the oldest sally port (a secure entrance) in Malta, which formerly linked Ferramolino’s fortifications to St. Angelo’s Battery. It remained in place until the nineteenth century when improvements (well, changes) to the fort by the British took it out of use.

The passageway.

The partly unblocked end of the passage. The building which this leads to was used by the British military as a dormitory until it was recently turned into a museum, and it’s now interpretation room 1.
