See the little outcropping of rock in the distance? Not the black rock, but the beige one with the grass toupee. It’s called Fungus Rock because it was the only spot where Malta Fungus once grew. The weird plant (not really a fungus) was discovered by the Knights Hospitallers, who used it to stop bleeding and cure dysentery. Dwera Tower, which was originally a watchtower, was converted into a guardroom to protect the Knight’s valuable medicinal stash.
