Historic Quay Wall

The Valletta Waterfront restoration project boasts a continuous promenade with multifarious commercial and leisure activities, and consists of the rehabilitation of the Grade 1 listed Pinto Stores (1752) and Forni Stores (1626 and 1720), as well as the rebuilding of the Historic Quay Wall where the Knights of St John and European merchants used to unload their wares.

The project was awarded the prestigious European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Awards, Europe’s top honour in the heritage field, from the European Commission in 2006.
