The Manoel Island & Tigné Point Development

Restoration of The Cattle Shed

Another building on Manoel Island which formed part of the quarantine facilities, and which was used to house livestock brought into port, is the Cattle-shed, originally known as il-Bovile.

The Cattle-shed was erected just outside the Lazzaretto divisions and consisted of a large square enclosure with rows of stables on the east and west sides flanking an open courtyard at the centre, whilst a number of rooms to the south served as staff quarters.

MIDI plc has recently concluded the first stage of conservation works on the cattle-shed’s facade, whilst a permit application has been submitted to the authorities for the next phase of restoration.
