Fodor's Review

Where knights once honed their fencing skills under a covered loggia (now open to the sky), a troupe of cats and some greenery occupy this lofty lookout offering the best ininteruupted views of Grand Harbour and the Three Cities across the water. A cannon is fired at noon, daily, following a practice that once marked time for vessels anchored in the harbor.
