Fort Manoel between 1723 and 1733 by the Knights of the Order of Malta during the reign of the Grand Master António Manoel de Vilhena, from whom it takes its name. The British army took over the fort in the 1800s and it was used until 1964.

Fort Manoel has been on Malta's provisional list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1998, as part of the Fortifications of the Knights around the Ports of Malta.
