There was a big fort here.   Wish I wrote this article last year while I could remember my trip better.   I remember there was a big grain silo here, this was needed in World War II, as Malta doesn’t produce much of its own food, stock piling materials was needed as no transport was going and in out meaning the Nazis would of starved the Maltese to death.
