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.

Sights in Mdina and Rabat

The whole city of Mdina is worth seeing. The city consists of many small alleys, a huge city wall with three gates, a very nice cathedral (from inside as well as outside), an observation platform (from there you have a nice view over the northern part of Malta), and much, much more. Rabat whereas is a modern city. There are also some nice sights, as the St. Paul’s Church and Grotto, the Museum of Roman Antiquities and the St. Paul’s Catacombs. While Rabat is a bit more vital, Mdina offers more culture and history. Have fun looking through the pages.

Marsascala Bay

Marsascala Bay is really a very beautiful bay. However one finds very few swimming possibilities there and in the few ones the sea is only accessible by means of a ladder. The entire bay is surrounded by cliffs.
