Cospicua (Bormla)

Cospicua (Bormla)

Cospicua (Bormla) lies in front of the two peninsulas: Vittoriosa (Birgu) and Senglea (L’Isla). The city is the consequence of the overpopulation of the two peninsulas, Vittoriosa and Senglea. It was designed in 1717 and is surrounded by two fortifications. The outer one is known as the Cottonera Lines and the inner as the Margerita Lines.

Well preserved are the gates of the fortifications. Nameable is the St. Helen Gate, the Verdala Gate, the Polverista Gate and the Zabbar Gate(Notre Dame Gate). Between the Margerita Lines and the Cottonera Lines there isn’t much to be found, only a few new buildings and a football ground.

The inner city is branched with many small alleys and stairs. Some of the small alleys lead to a dead-end street and are not even drawn in some of the maps.

The small alleys are busy, above all in the evening when the whole family is at home. People meet to have some small talk, children are playing, and adults smoke a cigarette and go for a walk...

Near the promenade at the Dock #1 is the Church of the Immaculate Conception. The original church on this spot was built in 1584. In 1637 it was expanded and in the year of 1828 it was blessed.

Beneath the church there is a street, Triq Santa Teresa, and a monument which is dedicated to the victims of the Second World War.

On the other side of the Dock #1 is another church, dedicated to St. Paul. The church was built in 1741.

Valletta Harbor Cruise

With a harbor cruise you get a beautiful insight into the capital of Malta, Valletta, with its enormous fortifications as well as the hidden angles and heavenly shores of the harbor. During the harbor cruise a guide explains the history and different parts of the harbor and the buildings around.

Marsascala

Marsascala lies south-east of Malta and resembles the sight of St.Julians, or vice versa. Marsascala has a nice, deep inland going bay. The bay is surrounded with a promenade. Unfortunately, the city isn’t a good starting point to discover Malta, because of its bad location and infrastructure.

Sliema

Sliema offers some swimming possibilities. The majority of the coast consists of rocks; however there are also small areas with sand. It is not an excellent beach; however it serves its purpose. Many tourists come for a short sun bath here.
