The iconic Belvedere gallery in St. Paul’s Bay has received a significant facelift as a €520,000 infrastructure project comes to completion.
The works encompass installation of new pavements, railings, and state-of-the-art lighting, promising to modernise the popular tourist spot.
The project was formally opened by Clayton Bartolo, the Minister for Tourism, in the company of Gavin Gulia, Chairman of the Malta Tourism Authority, and Alfred Grima, the Mayor of St. Paul’s Bay.
Minister Bartolo highlighted the need to match the promotion efforts of the Malta Tourism Authority abroad with tangible investments at home, particularly aimed at preserving and updating popular tourist destinations.
“Tourist expectations have evolved considerably over the past ten to twenty years. Today, the emphasis on quality of life is more important than ever,” Bartolo said.
“Therefore, a project of this magnitude is bound to significantly enhance the experience of residents of St. Paul’s Bay, domestic tourists, and foreign visitors. It provides a wonderful space for people to spend quality time with their loved ones.”
Echoing Bartolo’s statment, the Chairman of the Malta Tourism Authority, Gavin Gulia, assured that the Authority is determined to consistently enhance the quality of its tourism to match the expectations of tourists.
