ĦAL GĦARGĦUR

Triq San Nikola, Ħal Għargħur, GĦR 1162, Malta

Ħal Għargħur

Ħal Għargħur is perched on a steep peninsula on the Great Fault which run across Malta east-west.

It is another village on the Victoria Lines, the 19th century British fortifications that run along the top of the ridge. Ħal Għargħur was small farming community, and although it lies near the modern urban areas of central Malta, it retains a rural tranquillity. The village core itself is charming and picturesque with its ancient farmhouses, a windmill and a typical parish church. The church, designed by Maltese architect Tumas Dingli, houses several valuable artworks including a 13th century titular painting and a tryptich dated 1587. A short walk from the village centre brings you to some beautiful countryside with superb views.

Near the village, lies Fort Madliena, one of four forts built along the Victoria Lines. Guided tours are being provided by voluntary members of the St. John Rescue Corps solely on Satuday afternoons at 1430hrs and 1530hrs.
