St. Mary’s Gun Battery
St. Mary's Gun Battery, or Trunciera, as it's known in Malta, is a semi-circular gun platform at the eastern end of the island. It was designed to protect the channel between Malta and Comino, in conjunction with the Wied Musa Battery at Marfa on Malta. It's a 10 to 15 minute walk from St. Mary's tower, and is open all year round.
The Battery is open to the public all year round. To reach the St. Mary Gun Battery from the Blue Lagoon, we recommend first taking the path to the St. Mary Tower, then follow the road on to the Gun Battery.
