Valletta harbour is a deep water harbour ideal for the protection of shipping. The Royal Navy used the harbour as a safe anchorage for her capitol warships. Fort St Angelo was used as a shore side base. Near by are dry dock facilities and stores.

The ramparts with guns protected the inner harbour whilst other forts provided extended protection.
