Bus terminus, Valletta
Valletta's bus station is certainlythe hub for bus transport on Malta. Although called Valletta's bus station, the bus station is located just outside of the City Gate and so is actually located in Floriana.
The bus station is really a very wide roundabout with the Triton Fountain at it's centre and some stalls selling refreshments.
This monument is situated just in the entrance of Valletta just opposite the bus terminus where all the buses stop and wait the time to come to start going around Malta to pick up people from the bus stages !
No one can park his or her car here you have to either go to the car park or then at the sides just opposite Pheonica Hotel or on the side opposite the car park.
Here are the busses, in The Netherlands are those busses not allowed to go on the road, and stay in a musuem or are demolitoned but here are this busses the main transport for the people, every driver has his own chapel on board, when he is driving you can pray of the trip is going to an good ending, they are fast drivers in their old busses. The traffic on Malta is left.
The Triton Fountain, sculptured in 1959, is located in the centre of City Gate Square. This is also where the Bus Station is, and the Buses go round and round the Fountain.
Triton Fountain is at the centre of the Bus Terminus. Three mytological figures are holding a flat basin on their hands. This fountain was built in 1959 as part of the 'new' bus terminus project.
This is the beautiful Triton Fountain at the central bus station designed by the sculptor Vincent Apap in 1959.
