Santa Marija Tower Comino - Gozo, Malta

Santa Marija Tower Comino
Military Guardian Of The Gozo Channel

When the Order of St John had completed the fortifications of Valletta, it began to strenghten  its coastal defences by building a network of towers in strategic command locations to facilitate defence and communication.  The Santa Marija Tower formed part of this network and was a key defence post between the Cittadella in Gozo and Mdina in Malta.  the decision to build this Tower was taken by Grand master Alof de Wignacourt in 1618.  Its construction was financed by the Grand master himself, and by the sale of the
brushwood on the island and from the profits made by the resettled farmers.  The imposing site chosen was some eighty metres above sea level.

Square in plan with four corner turrets, it stands twelve metres high and sits on a plinth some eight metres high. A three-metres wide strip was laid along the plinth to enable the defenders to move easily to any endangered point.  The walls of the Tower are some six metres thick and the fout turrets are extended
perpendiculary and crowned with a battlement top.  By 1722 it was armed with three bronze cannon and two iron guns.

The Tower is surrounded by a high rubble wall of loose stiones which gives the impression that th Tower is surrounded by a ditch.  During the British period the Tower was important for the protection of the anchorage and communications between Gozo and Malta, together with Fort St Agatha (The Red Tower)
in Mellieha  and Fort Chambray in Gozo. During this period the interior of the Tower was significasntly changed, and it seems, likely tha it was used as an isolation hospital at some point, while the lower chamber was converted stable.  The tower knew notoriety as the infamous Chateau d'If in the 2002 film ' The Count of Monte Cristo'

Santa Marija Tower has been exposed to the elements for many years and its stone had greatly deteriorated
The roof waterproofing was badly cracked, vegetation had taken root in the crevices further dislodging stone blocks. Vandalism taken its toll and there was an almost complete absence of the parapet wall on the roof and turrets. A great number of large stone blocks had been taken from the plinth for other uses.  Din L-l-Art Helwa commenced the challenging restoration of the Tower in 2002 and completed it in 2005.
The project was sponsored by the Malta maritime Authority and the Vodafone Malta Foundation with
support from The Gozo Channel Co Ltd and The Comino Hotel.

The Tower is opened by Din l-Art Helwa volunteers from April to October on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 10.30 am to 3.00 pm, or when the Flag is flying. it is normally open on public holidays.
Bookings may be made for visits by schools and other groups, as well for private functions.  For more information call the Din l-l-Art Helwa Gozo and Comino Coodinator
