Cliffs at Binġemma

Cliffs at Binġemma. (Click on the photo for added detail.)

This week’s throwback is a final photo from the series taken at Binġemma five years ago. It shows the cliffs on the other side of the valley from the chapel, at the top of which run the Victoria lines. And below which lie a number of paleochristian tombs. The entrance to one of these, in fact, can be seen in this photo. I remember visiting these with my brother many years ago, when even finding the path down into the valley felt like such an adventure.

As I look at this photo again I find myself wondering where I found this point of view. It must be facing north west, as I can clearly see the cliffs at Ta’ Ċenċ in the distance. And I reckon that the solitary castellated building has to be Kastel Żammitellu, on the outskirts of Mġarr. Perhaps it would be well to revisit this valley for some photographic exploration.
