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

Valletta, probably the best spot with the most shops and malls to go shopping. The main street (Republic Street) is full of shops, especially jewelers. You must visit this street. The main road is full of people between 8am to 12am and again from 4pm till 7 pm. The so called Siesta takes place from 12am till 4pm.

Golden Bay - probably the most beautiful beach in Malta

Golden Bay is situated in the northwest part of the island. The beach is somewhat difficult to reach, since it lies quite remote. However it is worth the strain, as seen on the pictures; -). Sun, sand and sea. The beach is very large and extends itself far into the sea. The bay offers stunning scenery with its beautiful rock. Sunset at this beach is breath-taking. Also a range of boats are offered, like: Motorboats, Banana boats, small sailing boats, etc.

Plaza Shopping Mall

The Plaza Shopping Mall lies in the centre of Sliema and is similar to Bay Street in Paceville, however the flair is much different. The reason for this difference is probably that BayStreet is influenced very strongly by the nearby entertainment centre and nightlife of Paceville.
