Must visit for the cannon fire daily feature but it gets very crowded so go early to be at the front. The gardens are small butnthere is some nice planting and amazing watering system. Never seen so much hose! So interesting for horticultural enthusiasts

The tower is a short stroll from Bugiba town centre, and after your visit it’s worth walking on a further 500 yards or so to a waterfront cafe where latte is 1 Euro.

We are glad you enjoyed your visit at Wignacourt Tower, the first coastal watch tower built in Malta in 1610. Thanks for sharing your experience through your review.

The daily cannon shooting event with the great views to the harbor is very interesting. I would recommend it to be visited(every day at 12pm and 16pm).

You are definitely referring to the Valletta Saluting Battery here. Have you actually visited Wignacourt Tower in St Paul's Bay. Come and find us during your next visit to Malta if you missed us this time round. Hope you had a pleasant holiday in Malta.

So if you fancy visiting a small fort this is probably a good place to visit. Maybe will take up half an hour of your time and costs about two euros to get in. The tower had had a lot of effort put into to...More
