Notre Dame Gate was built in 1675 by Grandmaster Fra Nicola Cotoner as the principal gate into Cottonera – some 9km of continuous fortified trace that encircles The Three Cities (Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua). It is by far the most imposing and perhaps the nicest of all historic town gates left in Malta. It is built on five levels making it still the highest building in the region. From its terrace and roof one can enjoy excellent views of a good part of the island. This building still retains much of its past grandeur. It is an architectural gem of unparalleled proportions. At present it houses the headquarters of Fondazzjoni Wirt Artna – the Malta Heritage Trust.
