Malta - Mellieha Villa
We had a very good week's holiday with our friends, Mary & Martin. Unfortunately we went in early March & the weather was very cold. Not how I remember it as a little boy growing up in Malta.
Our Malta Photos are organised into:-
Mellieha & Birkikara this page
We stayed in the Hotel across the bay on our 1988 holiday.
Mary, Martin & me. It was a bright windy day.
Ann, me & Martin. A quaint, secretive village. The adjoining building had a Knights of St John plaque on it.
Selmun Palace is near where we were staying. There are forts & watch towers dotted all along the coastline.
A very imposing church with grand views of Mellieha Bay.
There are the most amazing Baroque churches in Malta. This one was bombed during the war & will get fully repaired eventually.
OK, I am being very indulgent here: I doubt that these three Photos are going to be of interest to you, so maybe skip down the page quickly!
On the left, my old home in Old Railway Road, Birkirkara. The garage housed another family, the Buhagiars.
Below is my first ever school, St Josephs in Valletta, now a Bank. If I leaned out of one of the upper windows, I could look down to St John's. The other photo is the entrance to Stella Maris, the school I went to when we were in Birkirkara.
Near where I used to live in Birkirkara, these gardens are fascinating.
Ann & Mary having a rest on stone thrones - chilly!
