New Lighting System for the Fortifications

The ERDF project has sought to introduce a co-ordinated, sustainable, and economic lighting system designed to provide evening and night-time appreciation of the fortifications of Birgu and its immediate areas. The lighting project also included Birgu’s intramural and historic urban fabric and architectural heritage. The project’s aim was to promote an artistic enhancement and experience of the fortifications, create safe and pleasant outdoor spaces, and highlight and emphasize important features such as gateways, cavaliers, sally-ports and historic buildings.
