St Agatha's Tower, Mellieha

(4.3/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • By the Seabank hotel about 20 minutes walk away. In the lower part there is a bit of history. Above, you have great views of the sea and the islands of Gozo and Comino.

  • Nice. Lovely views from the top. Nice thing to do in the area. Only €2 per person. The staff is nice and friendly too
  • Good for panoramic view. We arrived over the working time so it was closed. Ticket is 2 euros. According to pictures found online, you can see the same landscape from the base of the tower without entering.
  • Just a tower with the usual made up Maltese tales. Views are good.
  • If you like history this is a great place view are stunning
  • A delightful red hue during sun down, and an awesome sunset spot often ignored by many travellers.
