photograph of Red Tower

This imposing Red Tower is more correctly known as St Agatha's Tower and dominates the skyline of Malta's Marfa Ridge. It was built in 1647 to act as a signalling post for communication with the island of Gozo and is the furthest outpost from Malta's capital - Valletta. These days it is also an informative and interesting visitor centre

The Tower guards the bays of Mellieha and Ghajn Tuffieha. It originally housed cannon, 30 men and enough food to withstand a siege of 40 days. There are 4 towers rising from each corner of this square shaped tower, which has walls of about 4 metres thick.
