Changing of the Guard

Changing of the guard is a ceremony that takes place from time to time in Valletta. The new guard together with the AFM Military Band leave Valletta City Gate at 10:00 and walk all the way to the Presidential Palace in St George’s Square at around 10:15. Once there, there is a formal ceremony in which sentries providing ceremonial guard duties at important institutions are replaced by a new batch of sentries. After this ceremony, the AFM Military Band will accompany the old guard back to City Gate.
