History of Tigné Point

Tigné Point has witnessed some of the fiercest episodes in the island's long and often turbulent history. In 1565, Suleiman the Magnificent of Turkey dispatched 40,000 men in a bid to rid himself once and for all of his sworn enemies, the Knights of St John. During the ensuing Siege of Malta, Tigné Point itself quickly fell to Dragut Ar-Rais, one of the most feared Mohammedan corsairs of his time. From Tigné, Dragut laid siege to and eventually took Fort St Elmo, although he himself died in the attempt.
