The Comino Tower

The Observation Tower in Comino is the best preserved and well maintain building that remains on the island. The real name is Santa Marjia Torri ( St. Mary’s Tower) and it was build in the beginning of the 17th Century by the military engineer Vittorio Cassar. Once you climb up the stairs, you can see pretty much on every direction. I guess that back in the days when it was used pirates would attack from the east since this is the only point where the sea can’t be seen due to the geography of the island.
