Kalkara forms part of the area known as Cottonera, and is considered as an extension of the so-called Three Cities' area. Nestled inside the creek on the eastern side of Vittoriosa, it shares the same historical and economic background, which is a dependence on all things maritime and an important role during wartime. Kalkara has its own strongholds. Nearby Fort Ricasoli, a massive fortress at the entrance to Grand Harbour, was built in 1670. The smaller Fort Rinella is a late 19th century British addition to the harbour's fortifications. At the head of Bighi Peninsula is the old British Royal Naval Hospital, used today as a school for restoration studies. Kalkara Creek is also known as 'English Creek', a link which dates back to the time of King Henry VIII. Kalkara itself retains the air of a sleepy, picturesque fishing harbour. Behind the small boat yard at heart of the creek, is an entrance to the Great Ditch in the Three Cities' fortifications. From here, a path winds through an olive grove up to Vittoriosa. Moreover, on the outskirts of Kalkara there is a major development called Smart City Malta, a joint venture between the Government of Malta and Tecom Investments of Dubai.
