  • After extensive restoration works carried out by Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna at the Lascaris War Rooms supported by The Lottery Fund and the Bank of Valletta following the government's decision to entrust this historical site to the well known NGO back in 2005, Lascaris War Rooms in Lascaris Ditch, Valletta has now been partially opened to the public and are due to officially open their doors on the 9th September 2010. The Lascrais War Rooms complex originates from the early stages of WW2 when an old communications tunnel running across under the Upper Barracca Gardens from Battery Street to the Valletta Main Ditch was converted into a Sector Operations Room by the Royal Engineers for Royal Air Force use. From here the movements of enemy aircraft could be tracked and plotted on a large map to facilitate air and ground defence coordination. With the intensity of the war, more space was excavated to make more room underground for communications and radar tracking facilities. Late in 1940, the Royal Navy war room at Fort St. Angelo made its way to this complex along with that of thw artillery's anti-aircraft defence. The coast artillery room remained where it was in the crypt under the then Garrison Church now the Exchange Building at Castille Place, Valletta.
