Alarme Re-Enactment in the heart of Valletta


Alarme is a military re-enactment held at Fort St. Elmo inValletta. This event shows the historic and turbulent nature of Malta under the French, following Napoleon’s landing and conquest of the islands in 1798.

The re-enactment shows the arrival of the French troops’ in Malta, the attempt to administer the Maltese Islands by a Republican government, the rebellion of the Maltese that led to the blockade of the troops inside the harbour towns, and finally the surrender of the French troops to the British in 1800.

You can only visit Fort St. Elmo prior to the re-enactment, so we advise that you enter the fort well before the show starts and explore this amazing historical fort.
