A massive place, that you can see from the air, as you arrive and depart Malta. You can see it for miles when on the ground. Well worth a visit.

As it's a Sunday it will be an afternoon meeting. However it's still only early Spring, so I think it would be about 12:30. Full details would be published in The Malta Times on the day.
