On the main street, Triq ir-Repubblika you'll pass the cracked steps and shattered column stumps of the ruined Royal Opera House. This once imperious building was built in the 1860s, but was destroyed during a German air raid in 1942. Its gutted shell has been left as a reminder of the war.
The Lower Barrakka Gardens contains a little Doric temple commemorating Sir Alexander Ball, the naval captain who took Malta from the French in 1800.
