St Nicolas Bastion

St. Nicholas Bastion, Sur San Nikola, Fgura, Malta
Posted on May 19, 2023 / 9
Listing Type : Defence Line
Location : Malta

St Nicolas Bastion was built by the Knights of St John.  The British used the bastion for barrack accommodation.

A single 64-pdr  MLR gun was mounted on the end of the bastion for land defence.  The pivot on this position on this site is very different to the ones seen on the other bastions, there is therefore a chance that a different gun was later mounted here.

This is similar to the emplacements on the other seven Bastions including the adjacent Notre Dame Bastion.
