Location:

Pieta is the name of a village and a creek at the head of Marsamuscetto Harbour, near the base of the peninsula on which Valletta stands. The PIETA MILITARY CEMETERY is 1.5 kilometres away from Valletta and is approached by the main road running north-west to Sliema. Where this turns towards the head of Pieta creek it leaves, on the left hand side, the cemeteries of Ta-Braxia and Pieta. At the bottom of Ta-Braxia Cemetery there is a sign post indicating Pieta Cemetery at the beginning of the street Triq id Duluri (Our Lady of Sorrows Street). The PIETA MILITARY CEMETERY is located about 100 metres up this street.
