The Saluting Battery is one of Malta’s most vibrant locations that brings 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. Perched high on the bastions below the Upper Barrakka Gardens, the Saluting Battery in Valletta is an exclusive Corinthia Caterers venue and one of our most unusual and dramatic locations. Ideally suited to corporate events and gala dinners for conference and incentive groups, this striking location also provides a stunning backdrop for wedding receptions during the summer months. Its views, atmosphere, history and spectacular outdoor location, make it one of our most sought-after event venues.
The Saluting Battery has recently been carefully restored by 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 and at noon each day, the Heritage Trust brings the site’s history alive with its firing of the midday gun display and interpretation. The line up of historic cannon can be fired upon request, adding a special touch to your event.
