Tigné Point (the Point)

Lonely Planet review

Tigné Point, a promontory east of Sliema, was one of the sites where the Turkish commander Dragut Reis ranged his cannons to pound Fort St Elmo into submission during the Great Siege in 1565. The tip of the peninsula is still known as Dragut Point. This whole area has undergone massive redevelopment, with construction of residential apartments set around large pedestrianised areas. It's now home to Malta's largest shopping mall, the Point, which houses international chains including Debenhams, M&S, Adidas and many more, plus cafes and restaurants. The previously neglected Tigné Fort, built in 1792 by the Knights of St John, was under restoration at the time of writing. It is slated to be a cultural, heritage and commercial venue.
