Town Information: Vittoriosa, previously known as Birgu, is one of the Three Cities (the other two being Cospicua and Senglea). This little town is situated on a peninsula, just across the Grand Harbour. Originally known as Il Borgo, and then Birgu, it was one of the most important towns in medieval Malta. In 1530, when the Hospitallers (Knights of St. John of Jerusalem) arrived in Malta, they resided in and conducted their government from this town. It was strongly fortified and served as the Hospitallers defense bastion against the Turks in the Great Siege of Malta in 1565.Numerous typical maltese houses and alleyways can be found in and around Vittriosa. This city has just recently undergone tremendous investment with a brand new yacht marina, a casino and numerous eateries along its waterfront.
