Valletta City Gate

La Valletta, Malta

The Valletta City Gate project aims to transform the main entrance to Malta’s capital by creating a coherent scheme for an area that has suffered from controversial and confused urban development. The undisputed historic and architectural heritage of the site will be preserved and restored, while the creation of new cultural and civic venues will create a more vibrant urbanity. The project includes the renovation of the City Gate - a symbolic site, the conversion of a portion of the historic dry moats that flank the city, the design of a new Parliament building, and the restoration of the Opera House. The rehabilitation and the rationalisation of adjoining public spaces will expand and improve pedestrian circulation into and within Valletta.
