Towns & Villages


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


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.
