Naval & Military Architecture

Geographic location has an emphatic habit of influencing the course of history, and the story of Malta is an important case in point. Malta’s naval and military history thus spans many centuries. Sited practically in the centre of the Mediterranean, its important strategic position was such that over the centuries the Island has witnessed the building of great works of fortification designed by engineers from most of the major military powers, the result of which is one of the finest collections of military architecture in the world.
