Bella Comino Ferry Service Gozo

Former Police Station

Built in 1852 overlooking the Blue Lagoon at a cost of 456 scudi (equivalent to approximately 46 Euros). The Comino police service like other stations across the islands was looking for smuggling and contraband activities and other illegal acts such as evasion of quarantine regulations during outbreaks of cholera, plague and typhoid. The cost of policing the island in 1897 was 14,447 Euros roughly one third of the total expenditure then made by the Maltese government on security. During World War 2 the police station was used as an observation post
