St Anne Chapel - Fort St. Angelo

Standing on the site of an ancient temple in the town of Birgu, St. Anne’s Chapel is one of Malta’s oldest churches. Constructed in 1430, inside the medieval castle of Castrum Maris, the chapel was built on the site of a medieval church for the exclusive use of the occupying Castellan and his family.

Upon the arrival of the Order of St John in 1530, the castle was gradually turned into a fortress. The chapel was enlarged in 1532 by Grandmaster L’isle Adam and was used to house the Order’s repository of relics.

An aisle was added in which he and five succeeding Grand Masters were later buried. It remained a private chapel for his successors until the Order moved to Valletta in 1571. Under British rule, it was used to store arms and ammunition, but was converted back to a chapel for the fort’s Maltese workers after World War ll, and now serves as a museum.

A fascinating testament to the Island’s vast and colourful history, this charming chapel is one of Malta’s most enchanting treasures!
