Malta’s coastline is dotted with over 30 coastal watchtowers… and you definitely cannot miss them! These beautiful towers are rich in history and are also great marking spots for beautiful walks around Malta’s amazing coastline.

Towers were built by the Knights of Malta and date back to the 17th century. Different features distinguish towers built by different Grand Masters. Location was strategically chosen so that each tower could view neighbouring towers. A firing signal was given from one tower to the next when enemies approached quickly alerting the whole Island.
