Floriana is located just outside the capital city of Malta, Valletta. The origins of Floriana date back to 1634 when Grandmaster de Paule, sensing another attack by the Ottoman Turks, brought over an Italian engineer, Pietro Paolo Floriani, who built further fortifications in the town. And this is from where Floriana gets its name. Floriana was meant to be a suburb of Valletta, but it developed to be a town on its own. It covers an area of 133 acres and has a population of around 2,600 people. The town offers a rich history with a number of historic buildings, churches, gardens and monuments that shed a light on the Maltese history.

These are deep large holes dug into the ground built with the purpose of
storing grains. The containers are covered with large circular stones that are
sealed with cement to keep the grains fresh. The granaries, also known as ilfosos,
are one of the largest open spaces in Malta and are therefore often used
for large gatherings such as political mass meetings and music concert,
including the globally famed Isle of MTV.
