In Guardia Parade in the capital of Malta


The In Guardia Parade is a re-enactment show that is held from time to time at Fort St. Elmo in Valletta. Indeed, in this show you can witness an authentic episode that used to happen regularly inside the fort during the time of the Knights; you will be present to the inspection of the fort and the garrison by the Grand Bailiff of the Order of the Knights of St. John, who was in charge of military affairs.

During In Guardia show, all 70 re-enactors are dressed in fine uniforms from the era, while they perform a military drill that demonstrates the readiness of the garrison to act in case of a military threat. You can explore this historical Valletta fort only before the show starts, so we recommend that you arrive at the Fort well before the In Guardia Parade starts.
