St. Mary’s Tower – Comino

The tower is found in Comino and it formed part of the earlier structure of towers which the Order had placed to help the deference and communications between Cittadella and Mdina. It was Grand Master Adolf de Wignacourt who in 1618 decided to build this tower whose walls are around 6 metres thick.

Din l-Art Helwa helped to restore the tower in order to conserve the monument and keep it as a landmark. The tower is open from April to October on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10.30am to and is usually open on public holidays.
