The Saluting Battery is one of Malta’s most vibrant locations, bringing history to life on a daily basis. This venue proudly represents the oldest saluting battery still in operation in the world.
Breathtaking views in a venue alive with history. Saluting Battery in Valletta, perched on the bastions below Upper Barrakka Gardens, is an exclusive venue of Corinthia Caterers and one of our most unusual and dramatic locations. It is ideally suited to corporate events and gala dinners for conference and incentive groups and provides a simply stunning backdrop for wedding receptions during the summer months. For its views, atmosphere, history and spectacular outdoor location, it is among the most sought-after event venues on the island.
The Saluting Battery has been carefully restored by a leading heritage trust, Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna. The battery forms part of the city’s old fortifications the building of which started in 1566, just one year after the Great Siege. It occupies one of the most strategic positions in the Grand Harbour At noon, the heritage trust brings the site’s history alive with its firing of the midday gun display and interpretation. As a special touch, the line up of historic cannon can be fired to make your event truly unique and memorable.
