Vittoriosa (Birgu)

Vittoriosa (Birgu) is probably the nicest of the three peninsulas southwards of Valletta. The city was the first settlement around this area. When the Knights of St. John arrived in Malta in 1530 they set up camp in Vittoriosa and started to upgrade the fortifications, including the Fort St. Angelo. After the Great Siege of 1565 they moved to Valletta. Birgu has nowadays a population of 3000 and the fortifications are as impressive as those of Valletta. Behind every corner you can discover something new. The best way to enter the city is through the ‘Couvre Porte’ which was restored in 2002. Above is a modern gate which breaks through the fortification of the ‘Poste de Provence’ and is used as a road for cars.

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.

Prices in Malta

The cost of living is comparably average. Approximately 2/3 of the products consumed have to be imported from abroad. Unfortunately, the small market allows many monopolies to emerge.
