Valletta touring, April 15, 2017

Today was our day to walk around Valletta, seeing the sights! Views over Grand Harbour, above and below.Waiting for the firing of the cannon, enjoying Spritz’s with Chuck and Laurie, and checking in with our families with emails! The Saluting Battery was constructed in the 16th century by the Order of St John.  It saw military use in blockage of 1798-1800 and in World War II.  It was an active military installation until guns were removed by the British in 1954, and opened to public in 21st century for tours with gun salutes daily at noon and 1600.We then walked to Baracca Gardens. Above and below are pics from Church of St Francis of Assisi.Above, Victoria Gate, one of the ports through the city walls!A great day in Valletta!!
