St. Angelo’s Castle in Malta, also known as Castello a Mare, has a fascinating religious and military history dating back to the Middle Ages. Built by the Knights of St. John in the 15th century, the castle has played a crucial role in defending Malta against invasions and has undergone several transformations over the centuries. Its association with the Order of St. John and its strategic location at the entrance to the Grand Harbour make it a site of great historical and religious significance.

In the context of the Maltese Way of St. James, St. Angel’s Castle takes on a new dimension as the arrival point of the pilgrimage route. Pilgrims who end their journey at this imposing castle experience not only the majesty of the place, but also the symbolic culmination of their spiritual journey in Malta. The rich history, impressive architecture and connection to the Order of St. John make St. Angelo’s Castle a significant destination for those exploring the Maltese Way of St. James.
