|Delimara Tower & Battery|
|Built by||Order of Saint John|
Both the tower and the battery have been demolished.
Delimara Tower was built in 1659 at the tip of Delimara Point.
It followed the standard design of the De Redin towers, having a square plan with two floors and a turret on the roof.
A feature unique to Delimara Tower was that it had machicolations.
It also had a buttress at the base, implying that it had some structural weaknesses.
A similar buttress still exists at Triq il-Wiesgħa Tower.
A mortar battery was built near the tower in 1793.
Both the tower and battery were demolished by the British to clear the line of fire of the nearby Fort Delimara.
