St. Paul's Bay Tower

St. Paul's Bay Tower is a fortification on the island of Malta, constructed in 1610 overlooking St Paul's Bay. It is the oldest of the Wignacourt towers, which are named after the Grand Master of the Knights of Malta, who commissioned their building. Grand Master Fra Aloph de Wignacourt also contributed significantly from his personal funds towards the cost of its construction.

It is a precursor to the later Lascaris and de Redin towers.
