What an outstandingly restored fortified tower, presented in an impeccable condition, displaying the history of the defence of Malta. Although only open three days a week, entry is free and full access is available. Worth the visit.

Torri Mamo used to be in the middle of nowhere before building and development of m'scala really started - it is on the main road between zejtun and m'scala and is kept in immaculate condition - small but worth seeing if in the vicinity as...More

Unique fortified residence built in 1657 at a time when areas of the island outside of the city walls were still prone to attack by corsairs or enemy forces.

A really quaint and unique (even for Malta) tower. It's a pity that this tower is always closed and is only ever opened rarely to hos special events (such as concerts, auctions, etc..). Worth having a look at if you're nearby.
