The fortress walls surrounding Birgu were rebuilt after the Great Siege of 1565, and many remain intact today. Pictured is the Couvre Porte gate, which leads into the old city. Inside the gate, you’ll find the Malta at War Museum, dedicated to Malta’s role during World War II. (The breaks in the wall are mostly due to this war.)
