The entrance to Valletta, Malta’s capital city, has been undergoing works in preparation for the upcoming unveiling, as part of current restorations. Part of the restorations including the removal, cleaning, and re-installation of the famous Triton Fountain, located just outside Valletta’s entrance.
However, the construction works are coming to a close, and one of the first things to be unveiled was the Triton Fountain itself. Having undergone restoration by experts in Florence, Italy, it has now reclaimed its rightful place, welcoming people to the capital city.
In an eye-catching unveiling, the newly restored Triton Fountain’s new lights at night make it glow like never before
The stunning photo, taken by Ray Azzopardi, shows the Triton Fountain lit up at night, with a beautiful turquoise-blue colour shining strongly from beneath the fountain.
With the rest of the plateau surrounding the Fountain to be opened to the public in the coming months, the entrance to Valletta may finally be ready, after years of reconstruction.
People online reacted positively to the new Fountain’s colours, calling it ‘beautiful’ and ‘amazing’.
Focus will now turn to restoring the ditch beneath the city entrance bridge as Valletta takes its place as the 2018 European Capital of Culture.
