The Three Villages

Lying between the old medieval capital city of Malta, Mdina, and the Baroque capital city, Valletta, lies the so-called Three Villages, namely Ħ’AttardĦal Lija and Ħal Balzan. The present combined population of these three villages does not exceed more than 18,000 people, although this increase is the result of modern buildings around the periphery of the Three Villages.

Walking the streets of these villages one gets the impression of going back in time, with the well-kept alleys, the restored noble palaces, and the beautiful parish churches and other interesting features.

The walk will take one through parts of the area, although everyone is invited to explore the whole area and be enchanted by the unique villages of Ħ’Attard, Ħal Lija and Ħal Balzan.
