Malta to resonateCome February 17 and Malta will resonate with the IN GUARDIA PARADE,
a re-enactment that portrays an authentic event that took place regularly inside
important military fortifications in Malta and Gozo. The re-enactment portrays the
inspection of the St. John’s Cavalier in the town of Birgu and its garrison by the
Grand Bailiff of the Order of the Knights of St. John in charge of military affairs.
During the re-enactment, the soldiers and knights of the fort’s garrison – some 55
re-enactors – are kitted-out in their finest uniforms and perform a military drill
demonstrating to the Grand Bailiff the garrison’s state of readiness in the event of a
military threat.

The show starts at 11.00 hrs. – lasts 45 minutes and will be held at St. John’s
Cavalier (close to Couvre Porte), in Birgu (Vittoriosa).

One may be able to visit part of the fort prior or following the re-enactment. The
re-enactments are held according to schedule as above.

Tourists may take advantage of this visit to explore Birgu and its historic
attractions, e.g. Inquisitors Palace, Maritime Museum, Malta at War Museum
and the Couvre Porte area. One may also visit Malta’s best flea market at Fortini
football ground located just outside the town. Then one could head towards the
centre of the town to visit the Collachio (city core area).

The Town Square and the Birgu Yacht Marina are both interesting places where
to make a brief exploratory stop. To finish off the tour of Birgu, one may also sit
down and relax for a coffee or snack at one of Birgu’s many restaurants.
