Sant’ Andrija u l-Mitħna tax-Xarolla

This week’s throwback is a double feature, with photos of the chapel dedicated to Sant’ Andrija and the nearby Mitħna tax-Xarolla, from a walk in the Żurrieq area last year. Starting from town, I passed by these landmarks and another nearby chapel on my way out, and returned through secluded Wied il-Bassasa and a route along the sea cliffs. The chapels and the windmill had … Continue reading Sant’ Andrija u l-Mitħna tax-Xarolla

Madonna ta’ Hodegitria and Farm Buildings at Binġemma

So much for getting my schedule back on track. This week I’m again a bit late writing up this blog post to share some throwback photos. Some compensation is that I’m sharing two photos today, which are very much related to each other. Too much to deserve to be shared separately. Both photos are from an outing in Binġemma a little more than five years … Continue reading Madonna ta’ Hodegitria and Farm Buildings at Binġemma

Madonna ta’ Hodegitria and Victoria Lines

There is a particularly pretty section of the fortification lines where they cross the valley just below the chapel there. In the first photo, above, the chapel dedicated to the Madonna ta’ Hodegitria can be seen on the left, while … Continue reading Madonna ta’ Hodegitria and Victoria Lines


This week’s throwback post takes us back to late winter this year, and a walk starting from the cliffs at Dingli and heading down through Fawwara. I already shared photos of the other chapel in the small hamlet of Fawwara. This one, too, proves to be rather tricky to photograph due to the very limited viewpoints. Those who are interested will find details about this … Continue reading Lunzjata

Lunzjata and Laferla Cross

For this week’s throwback I’m starting with photos from another walk I did last winter, in the countryside around Fawwara and Girgenti, in the outskirts of Siġġiewi. The high point of the walk was a steep hill, at the top of which there’s the Laferla Cross and the nearby chapel of the Annunciation (Lunzjata in Maltese). The cross is a well-known landmark in the area, … Continue reading Lunzjata and Laferla Cross
