St Agatha's Tower, Mellieha

4.3
Climb to the top of St Agatha's Tower, one of the main defensive positions during the time of the Knights of St. John, for views of the island and nature reserve. Built in 1649, the tower was manned during both world wars and equipped with a cannon and enough food and ammunition for 30 men to withstand a siege of 40 days. The steep steps leading to the top of the tower may be challenging for those with mobility issues.
