About Vittoriosa:

Throughout history, Birgu developed as Malta’s main maritime town. Any military power or nation which wished to govern Malta was bound to use Birgu as an important maritime town, due to its ideal berthing location in Grand Harbour.The people of Birgu thus developed a great bond with the maritime activities of the Maltese islands and for many centuries Birgu Marina and Fort St. Angelo served as the arsenal for mercantile and military ships, as well as headquarters for the British navy in the Mediterranean.
