Photos: Sand in St. George’s Square

The iconic St. George’s Square in Valletta will be celebrating summer by hosting a beach volley tournament in collaboration with Valletta 2018.  This tournament will take place until this Sunday.

St. George’s Square, which is surrounded by the Grandmaster’s Palace, the Main Guard and other iconic buildings was filled with sand and transformed into a beach volley court, so that volleyball could be played there.

Several people expressed their concern about this event and claimed that culture was being totally ignored instead of given the prominence it deserves in this year supposedly dominated by culture.

They also claimed that the prestige of this square was being ridiculed.
