The Island of Malta region
Malta has great reputation of the best holiday destination. The beautiful Mediterranean climate, considerable amounts of sunshine even during the winter months and the clear, warm sea are just some of the things that lend it to this market. Add to the great climate the lovely beaches, dramatic coastal scenery and variety of watersports and leisure activities, and it becomes clear why Malta is so popular with the package holidaymaker.
Malta is by no means only a place for the beach lover however. In fact, stick only to the sea and sand and you'd miss out on Malta's true highlights. Its wonderful and ancient past is evident all around you the minute you step off the beaches. Man's comprehensive temple-building spree left the Ggantiji temples on Gozo, the oldest freestanding structures on earth and the labyrinthine Hypogeum containing 3600-year-old bones amongst others. A few days off the beaches will give you time to explore the bustling street of Valletta, the facinating walled capital Mdina, the many attractive stone-built towns and the wonderful villages that demonstrate the quieter side of Mediterranean life.
Malta has a lot to offer, so whether its sea and sand, or history that you're after, you'll find it more than satisfies.
Msida or Imsida is a harbour town in Malta with a population of 7,623. The town is located just west of Valletta on the northeast coast of Malta. The town enjoys a Mediterranean climate with hot, dry, sunny summers and short, cool winters.
The neighbouring towns of Msida are Ta' Xbiex, Gzira, Sliema, St.Julians, San Gwann, Birkirkara, Santa Venera, Hamrun and Pietà. Msida is an important town for all travellers as many of the country's bus routes pass through it.
The patron saint of Msida is Saint Joseph while the protector is The Holy Conception. For a week and a half in July, the town celebrates the feast of St. Joseph. The feast of Msida is also famous for its traditional game “Il-Gostra”.
The Mater Dei Hospital is located in the outskirts of Msida. It was inaugurated by the prime minister of Malta Dr. Gonzi in June 2007 and has a total floor area of 232,000m2 and approximately 8,000 rooms. It also houses a teaching facility for the University of Malta.
Its name comes from an Arabic word meaning "a fisherman's dwelling". However it could also be derived from the word 'Omm Sidna' meaning 'The Mother of Our Lord' since there could have been a small chapel dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God.
Msida was previously an old fishing village. Although it is now more urbanised, some fishermen still operate in the village.
Msida became a parish in 1867. Then the settlement was centered around the hovels located inward at Valley Road, and some nearby ancillary roads and pathways which led up to the quaint district of Villambrosa. This status did not last long however, as a new parish Hamrun was hived off in 1881. Today the lowest part of Villambrosa Street remains a silent reminder of Msida's jurisdiction in this area.
In the late 19th century, a floating British navy hydraulic dock was also planned at the central part of Msida close to where the Torpedo Depot used to stand. The plan was soon aborted but instead, this area would in later years experience a booming yacht marina service, which has been growing ever since, thanks to new incentive policies issued by the central government.
