The Vedette (or watch tower) is an old lookout point in Safe Haven Garden, Senglea, Malta. It is famous for its sculpture of eyes and ears on the exterior walls, denoting its job as a lookout (and presumably 'listen-out' too).

The Vedette has wonderful views across to Malta's capital city, Valletta, over the Grand Harbour. During World War II Malta played an important part as a base for supplies and troops.

The people here were awarded Britain's highest award for civilian bravery, for the part they played in supporting the Allies. The island was badly bombed by Nzi and Italian bombers and the watch tower would have been a key look out post, during this time.
