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.

A boat trip around the whole island of Malta and Comino

A boat trip around the island of Malta and Comino can be booked in any travel agency. You can’t possibly miss a travel agency, because they have an eye-catching facade. There are especially many in Sliema near the coastline as well as in Paceville.

University of Malta (UOM)

The university in Malta accommodates around 7500 students. It is the only university on the Maltese Islands. Citizens of the European Union are not required to pay any tuition fees - at least for the moment.

GOZO

Gozo has something to offer which Malta does not have. For example on one hand the Azure Window, a naturally formed arch on the coast. On the other hand the capital Victoria with the small romantic lanes and the large bastions, from which one has an excellent view of the whole of Gozo and parts of Malta and Comino. Then there is the beautiful beach, the Ramla Bay, and the historical temples of Ggantija. In addition the flair of the island and the inhabitants is a completely different one than in Malta.
