The Mistra coastal battery was constructed in 1761 by Grand Master Pinto and has some particular features which render it unique. Last year the fish farm company Pisciculture Marine de Malte restored the place after being given an alternative site from where to operate.

Since then it has already been repeatedly vandalised. Apertures and glass panes are being broken and BBQs are staining the walls in black. Din l-Art Helwa has asked to take care of this site on various occasions and something has to be done urgently to protect the site further.
