Sharing the Legacy will take place across various sites in Valletta and the Grand Harbour area.

Main conference venue

Fort St Elmo

Fort St. Elmo is a star-shaped fort built by the Order of St. John at the tip of the peninsula, on which Valletta is also built, to save guard the two main harbours of Malta – the Grand Harbour and Marsamxett Harbour. The fort had a major role during the most important historic events that occurred throughout Maltese history, especially the Great Siege of 1565 and World War II (text and images provided by Heritage Malta).
