What a surprise!!!! A fabulous place to visit. Amazing underground bunker with displays throughout. Very informative and couldn’t believe how cheap it was to go in 2.40€ per adult. Such an interesting visit.

This shelter comprises of vast tunnels which helped to keep the people of Mellieha safe during the war. It’s a fascinating insight into the plight of the island and how the people survived, and indeed fought back. Well worth a visit.
