In Guardia

The IN GUARDIA PARADE is a re-enactment that evokes an authentic event that took place regularly inside important military fortifications in Malta and Gozo. The re-enactment portrays the inspection of the garrison of the Palace by the Grand Bailiff in charge of military affairs. 

During the re-enactment, the troops - some 50 re-enactors in all - are kitted out in their finest uniforms to perform their military drill in order to demonstrate to the Grand Bailiff their state of readiness in the event of a military threat.

The show starts at 11.00 hrs and lasts 45 minutes.


Tickets at the gate:

Adults : € 7

Children (6 - 16 years): € 3

This re-enactment takes place at Fort St. Elmo, Valletta. However, in the months of June and July the shows are shifted to the Grand Master’s Palace. Please refer to the online events calendar for more information.

The In Guardia Parade is organised by the MALTA TOURISM AUTHORITY. For further information please write to
