5. Is-swar tal- Mdina - bastions.

F'din ix-xena ma tidhirx il-funtana antika u anqas il-Casino Notabile imzewwaq bl-iskultura imma wiehed jista jara l-Hotel Il-Veduta jew Point de Vue wieqaf wahdu fuq ix-xellug. Quddiemu aktar vicin jidhru l-palk tal-Imnarja minn fejn il-Granmastru kien iqassam il-palji lir-rebbieha tat-tigrijiet, xi bini iehor u triq it-tigrija li ghadhom hemm sal-lum.

One can neither spot the old fountain or Casino Notabile full of sculpture in this painting but one can just see the Point de Vue hotel standing alone on the left. In front of it in the foreground one can see the Mnarja stage from where the Grandmaster used to give out prizes to the winners of the horse races. There is also another old building near the stage wich still stands nowadays.


Il-pittura kif tidher fil-kuritur tal-palazz
The painting as can be seen in the palace corridor



L-interpretazzjoni tieghi tal-pittura
My interpretation of the painting



Parti mix-xena minn angolu iehor illum
Part of the scene from another angle taken nowadays
