Porte des Bombes (Maltese: Bieb il-Bombi), originally called Porta dei Cannoni, is an ornamental arched gate in Floriana, Malta. It is located within the faussebraye of the Floriana Lines, which formed the outer defensive walls of Valletta. The lines are situated between Pietà Creek and Marsa to the west and southeast, and the suburb of Floriana to the east. It was constructed in Baroque style and was finished in 1721, a year after the death of Fra Ramon Perellos y Roccaful, 64th Grand Master of the Order of Saint John. Perellos’ coat of arms appears above the gate.
