Torri ta' Ciantar, Limits of Mellieha, Malta

The Torri ta' Ciantar, which is not actually a coastal watchtower but a farmstead built with an interesting configuration, remains an important feature of the stunningly beautiful, rugged cliff edge coastline within the Majjistral Park.

It forms part of the rural built heritage that is due to be restored within the park and commands a marvellous viewpoint. The organisation 'Din l-Art Helwa' has already secured important funding through local institutions for the restoration of this particular building and for its conversion into a visitor and information point within the park, which is managed jointly with the Gaia Foundation and Nature Trust.

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
