at St John’s Cavalier - Birgu 2013


The IN GUARDIA PARADE is a re-enactment that portrays an authentic event that took place regularly inside Malta’s major fortifications of the Order of St. John.

During the re-enactment, the soldiers and knights of the fort’s garrison - some 55 re-enactors - are kitted-out in their uniforms to perform a military drill, demonstrating to the Grand Bailiff the garrison’s state of readiness.  

The show begins at 11.00 a.m. and lasts 40 minutes.
