Opened in 1940 to accommodate the Combined War Headquarters of all three services underground to protect it from aerial attack, this complex housed the Fighter Sector Operations Room used during the Battle for Malta 1940-43 along with other operation rooms and ancillary facilities.
After the end of WW2, it was used by NATO up to 1977 to track the movement of Soviet subs in the Mediterranean.
Lascaris War Rooms is now a very interesting Museum, with the history coming alive, right in front of the visitor’s eyes, thanks to Mike Gough and Nathaniel Calleja Gera, who provide all necessary information.
If you have the privilege of visiting the wonderful island of Malta, a visit at the Lascaris War Rooms is a must!
Here is a detailed photo presentation of the Lascaris War Rooms
