  • Fort Rinella, Kalkara is not only a unique remnant of Malta’s recent British colonial past but also home to the world’s largest cannon – The Armstrong 100-ton gun, which could fire it’s monster shells up to 8 miles and pierce 21 inches of ship armour. Built by the British Army in 1878 Fort Rinella’s task was to secure Malta against a potential Italian seaborne attack. Apart from the hourly guided tours, you can witness live, colourful and authentic re-enactments including military signalling, firing of rifles, bayonet practice, military cooking and more, which are carried out throughout the day.
