Birżebbuġa: A Walking Tour

Birżebbuġa has been ruined in many ways, which is why few people would recommend you visit it. It is for the same reason that this place is so interesting; this is where the island’s dirty laundry hangs, revealing stories of war, colonization and corruption, telling of a place that feels forgotten by its own country. Give Birżebbuġa some attention and you will learn more about Maltese identity than in any other place...
