Floriana




This is a view of Floriana. Floriana is found exactly next to Valletta. The photo was taken from the Valletta bastions.

Floriana is named after the Italian military engineer Pietro Paolo Floriani who was responsible for building the town's fortifications. However, the actual building of the residential town was the work of the Portuguese Grand Master Antonio Manoel de Vilhena.
