Towns & Villages

IMQABBA

29, Triq il-Parroċċa, Mqabba, MQB 1512, Malta

Imqabba

Imqabba is one of the South's ancient villages. It is also at the heartland of Malta's limestone quarries.

Some are active quarries while others are now disused and filled with fields and orchards. The village is also the site of some of the Islands' most interesting early Christian tombs, the Tal-Mintna Catacombs, which are decorated in relief carvings. Some houses in the village core have fine examples of stone-carved facades and balconies, reminiscent of Moorish and Spanish style.

Since the village is near the airfield, it suffered severe damage in World War II. But two of Malta's older churches survived: the Chapel of St. Basil, possibly the oldest medieval church in Malta; and the adjacent church of St. Michael, first built in 1550.

Another site of key historical interest is the Roman round tower, Torri Wilga.


Discovering Malta & Gozo Through its People & Culture

A project initiated by the Ministry for Tourism, the Environment and Culture in 2011 has led to the development of a number of itineraries for villages and towns which are considered to be on the periphery with regard to mainstream tourism, but which nonethelss showcase the real and authentic experience of the Maltese Islands.

Imqabba was one of the localities included in the second set of itineraries and maps developed for this project.
