    Seneca/Eric, The younger members of the family that own the Hotels are more interested in money and don't care how they get it, they have no interest in the Hotel business. By building plush apartments they don't have to bother their self imposed importance on menials such as staff and pay them, and paying guests too .

    Hey Bob C - you're right! I suspect that making more money is the motive behind what's happening with the Fortina Spa. Oh, and I believe the group who sang that song was ABBA.

    Hi,Derek, only just spotted your letter. We were at the Fortina Spa in March, this year and heard then that both the Spa and the Fortina 4 Star were due to be closed for refurbishment this coming winter. We had stayed at the 4 star in previous years and decided that we would like to see once more iin its old decor before it was "Done up".
    When we arrived in October we found the planning notice on the wall describing how the four star was to be completely demolished , to be replaced by luxury apartments. The Fortina Spa is apparently safe, but will have 5 extra storeys built on top of it... We are so glad that we spent several delightful holidays at the Fortina. We shall miss it - but we do have our memories and our photos; They can't demolish or redevelop those...Best wishes, Eric and Cath.

    Eric and Cath, we have been regular visitors to Fortina Spa, and we were devastated to hear it is being closed. We are staying at The Dolmen in February, and will post our views on this Hotel. What are they actually doing on the Fortina site??

    So, a final goodbye, after another four star fortnight, to the fabulous Fortina, now to be demolished, along with those beautiful gardens, to make way for yet more luxurious private accommodation. The March of Progress? As far as we are concerned, the tune is flat... Eric and Cath Humphrey.

    It's a site to see looking down onto the Grand harbour, as all the boats mill about before being marshalled into position for their sailing group. Think a big bottle of water be required if it stays as warm as this weeks been.

    Regatta at Sliema today. Saturday 21st will be the start of the Rolex Middle Sea Race with over 100 boats leaving the Grand harbour. It will be worth watching on these cams.

Valletta from the Fortina SPA Resort

Valletta (Il-Belt Valletta), the wonderful capital of Malta, is a baroque jewel of incomparable value declared a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO due to its extraordinary cultural heritage conservation.

Its origins are inextricably linked to the Knights Hospitaller (later Knights of Malta) who have built the city on a rocky area known as Sceberras Peninsula; Valletta (from latin: "Humilissima Civitas Valettae, Umilissima Città di Valletta") was named after the Grandmaster of the Order of Saint John, Jean Parisot de la Valette who laid the first stone; superbly located in the heart of the Mediterranean it is the key to its rich history and development, this stunning fortress-city grew rapidly and became the center of the maritime commerce enriched by its two famous harbours Grand Harbour (Il-Port il-Kbir) and Marsamxett Harbour (Il-Port ta' Marsamxett) both partially damaged, as a large part of the city, during the Second World War; the British Royal Navy settled here until 1979 and contributed to make them two of the most fortified and safest harbours in Europe, most cruise liners dock here. Valletta plays today an interesting role as a bustling and active admnistrative, commercial, tourist and cultural center, it's not by chance that it has been chosen as European Capital for Culture for 2018.

Valletta offers an invaluable historic heritage and breathtaking panoramic views among the richest in the world; the must-see attractions include the St. John's Co-Cathedral (Kon-Katidral ta' San Ġwann), the majestic Grandmaster's Palace with its impressive tapestries, today House of Parliament of the government of Malta (both dating back to the 16th century), old bastions and fortifications such as the Fort St. Elmo (Il-Forti Sant Iermu), the Auberge de Castille (Il-Berġa ta' Kastilja), the National Museum of Fine Arts or the Sacred Infirmary, the Knight's hospital. Valletta retains a timeless atmosphere, it is a pleasant mix of ancient and modern where picturesque cafès, old monuments, noble palaces and unnumbered churches, fashion clubs and unrivalled gardens are scattered everywhere. Noteworthy are the Barakka Gardens (Il-Barrakka ta' Fuq), originally the private gardens of the Knights of St. John, directly overlooking on Grand Harbour, Marsamxett Harbour and Cottonera Lines, an imposing line of fortifications surrounding the Three Cities of Vittoriosa (Birgu), Cospicua (Bormla) and Senglea (L-Isla); the tourist offer of Valletta also includes a number of sports and recreational activities as well as concerts, events and a dynamic nightlife also centred along the Valletta Waterfront in Floriana (Il-Furjana), a magical place recently renovated with stunning views on the Senglea fortifications.

Not so far, the city of Sliema and its Tigne Seafront offer stunning views on Valletta, all visitors will be carried away by a whirlwind of pure emotions.
