Fort St Michael, Malta

A fort of that name was built by the Knights of Malta between 1551 and 1565 on the peninsula then known as Isla St Michael formed by Dockyard Creek and French Creek in Grand Harbour. The Grand Harbour was very important for the Knights because it was a natural harbour, which was ideal for their fleet.

This area is still known as L-Isla, but is now occupied by the fortified city of Senglea.

John Zarb, Senglea send me this wonderful postcard of Malta.
Thank you, sir.
