Maltese Sunrise

    Barracca Gardens, Valletta, Malta

    I caught the sunrise at the Malta Siege Bell and Barracca Gardens in Valletta. The gardens were created in 1661 by Italian Knight Flaminio Barbiani.

    The bell and tower were installed in 1992 as a memorial to the 7000 people killed in the siege of World War II. From 1940 to 1943 Malta was besieged and bombed by Germany and Italy. The bombing is said to have been worse than the Blitz of Britain.
