Birzebbugia - sothern city in Malta

Birzebbugia - sothern city in Malta

Birzebbuga lies deep in the south on the great bay of Marsaxlokk(Pretty Bay). The city is very nice and has a certain charm. Unfortunately, this charm is shadowed by the cranes of the Malta Freeport, the air traffic and the oil tanks/pipelines of EneMalta nowadays. The bay has a nice promenade which follows the whole coastline in Birzebbuga.

The city has some viewing sights; however most of them are old. There are three batteries, however they are not open for the public. The temple, Borg in-Nadur, seems more like a back-yard garden. The church in the centre of the city is nice but also old. Interesting is the small chapel of St. George, however only for historians, because it is not open for the public. A bit outside of Birzebbuga are two caves. One is in the north (1km) and one in the south near the seaside (2-3km).

In the middle of the city is a beautiful beach with a childrens playground and two football-grounds. The water is very clear and very blue. The only thing that is destroying this beautiful scenery are the cranes of the Malta Freeport, the oil-tanks and pipelines of EneMalta and the air traffic.

Valletta - Capital City of Malta

Valletta (7100 inhabitants) is a unique city. She lies on a peninsula in western Malta. The city possesses enormous fortification. The building of the city started in 1566 and was finished only 10 years after. Named after the Grand Master Jean Parisot de la Vallette.

Sights in Vittoriosa (Birgu)

There is so much to see in Vittoriosa - the whole city is an open-air museum. The city is surrounded by an incredible flair of history, culture and modernity. The structure of the city equals that of a triangle. On the side facing to the inland there is a big city-wall with two gates. The most interesting way to enter the city is through the Couvre Porte. The side directed to the harbor entrance is also fortified. On the fortification, high above the sea, there is a nice promenade. From there you have a nice view on Valletta, the harbor gate and Kalkara. On the tip of the city is the Fort St. Angelo. The fort is stunning. The last side of the triangle, the side facing the Dockyard Creek/Senglea, has no fortification. There you can find the Casino de Venezia, Maritime Museum, St. Lawrence Church and a luxury hotel. In the city itself something is awaiting you around every corner. In the centre lies the Victory-Square - the square got his name after the Great Siege 1565 of the Turkish. It is said that the Grandmaster La Vallette was wounded during the siege on a fight at the fortification ’Poste de Castille’. The Turkish were already inside the city when the Grandmaster counterattacked them together with his personal body-guards.

Bugibba

What can Bugibba offer and how to get there? Both cities, Bugibba and Qawra, are directly linked to each other. The cities developed together into one another. One can hardly recognize where Qawra begins and Bugibba ends. The bay hardly offers sandy beaches, on the contrary is very rocky.
