Fort Angelo Vittoriosa Malta

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Lestilestudios created this drone video of Fort St. Angelo on the Mediterranean island of Malta.  It is situated in the middle of the Grand Harbor, in the city of Birgu (Città Vittoriosa).  Built by the Knights of St. John, the fortress was the focal point of the Great Siege of Malta in 1565.  Here, the fort's defenders held off an amphibious invasion by the Ottoman Empire, marking the end of the Ottoman bid for control of the Mediterranean.  It also was a filming location for the Red Keep seen in Season 1 of Game of Thrones.
