Ghajn Tuffieha Tower is a fortification that stands on the cliffs overlooking the shore at Ghajn Tuffieha Bay on the north west coast of Malta. It is one of five Lascaris towers that Grand Master Juan de Lascaris-Castellar of the Knights of Malta ordered be built. A watchtower, it was originally armed with a half pounder gun and garrisoned by four men. The tower still stands, and has been recently renovated.
