Geocache Description:

This cache takes you to Wignacourt Tower, also known as St Paul's Bay Tower

Lots of muggles in the area and there are also some balconies - so please take care when retrieving and replacing the cache.

Please bring own pen.

This tower was the first built by Grand Master Wignacourt and also the first of such towers built on the island.

Erected in 1609, it offered protection to the Order's fleet when this was required to shelter in St Paul's Bay, as well as preventing Turkish invasion from this bay. Its main armament consisted of two 6 pounder iron guns mounted on the roof.


This is being taken care of by Din L-Art Helwa foundation. Today, this area has been renovated and offers great views on St Paul's Islands.

IT'S NOT IN ANY WALL

If damaged, if possible, please put what is left in the nearby Bugibba Promenade TB hotel cache and inform me. THANKS!!!!
