See the historical side of Malta
Like many Maltese villages, history, colours and traditions abound in this locality. The Icon of Our Lady in the Mellieħa Sanctuary dates some one thousand years and is worth a visit during your stay here. The most striking landmark in the locality is St Agatha’s or as it is commonly known – the Red Tower. This impressive piece of military history dates back to 1649, the brainchild of Grand Master Jean Paul Lascaris Castellar in his efforts to strengthen Malta’s coastal defence system. Besides standing by centuries of history, the site has unparalleled views on large swathes of Malta, Gozo and Comino.
