I was not thrilled when I heard that the beautiful bastions surrounding Valletta were being demolished to make room for a new, modern entrance to the capital. I felt that history was being changed for the sake of modernity. As one can see, the architecture for this new gate is modern, streamlined and nothing like the original. I still prefer history to change in Malta. To me, it doesn’t seem to fit with Valletta’s architecture.
