The Corinthia Palace Hotel situated on the opposite side of the road to what was once the site of San Antonio station.

San Antonio station was 3 miles 900 yds. from Valletta and was used mainly by visitors to the Gardens of San Anton Palace which was a very popular place to visit, especially on feast days. The gardens also contain some railway relics. To accommodate the extra trains that were timetabled for the visitors to the gardens the track at this point had a passing loop.
