The Island of Malta region

Malta, a small island in the Mediterranean with a great history which dates back some 4500 years BC, when some people from the neighbouring island of Sicily, who could see the island lying on the horizon, decided to cross the narrow waters to investigate. These people settled on the island and sheltered in the many caves which exist there. The earliest inhabited cave is called 'Ghar-Dalam', the cave of darkness, where remains of these people and their artifacts give us an insight into their way of life. They cultivated the land, growing wheat and barley and practised animal husbandry.

Around 3500 BC they started to build large buildings the like of which were not to be found anywhere else. They kept in touch with their cousins in Sicily obtaining from them obsidian and flint with which they could make tools to help them work the stones. These buildings, of which there are fifteen , are spread across the island. They are the oldest existing megalithic structures known to man - places like Hagar Qim, Mnajdra, Tarxien, etc. antedate the pyramids and Stonehenge by some 1000 years.

Zebbug, Malta

Zebbug or Città Rohan is one of the oldest towns in Malta with a population of around 13,000 people. The Parish Church is dedicated to St. Philip, whose feast is on the 12th of May, but in the village it is celebrated on the second Sunday of June. The word Zebbug means olives in Maltese, and so, the town gets its name from the large olive groves that use to stand around the current location of the town centre.

Haz-Zebbug was given the title of Città Rohan by Grandmaster Emmanuel de Rohan-Polduc in 1777. On such occasions, the locals used to build a gate to serve as an entrance to the city, and the people of Haz-Zebbug did the same. The gateway still stands today.

When Malta was under the Knights, Zebbug was a key town; both because of prime corsairs who lived here and also because of the thriving cotton industry. The splendour of St. Philip's Church is the prime evidence of importance of Zebbug in the Maltese history. There were some prehistoric remains found in Haz-Zebbug, such as pottery and tombs in the area known as Ta' Trapna. Punic and Phoenician tombs and a number of cart ruts were also found around the town.

Zebbug: Things to see and do

The City gate: Built in the 18th century, this beautiful gate served as the entrance to the city.

Visit the parish church: The parish church dedicated to St. Philip is a museum of architecture, art and sculpture. The current parish church was built in the late seventeenth century. It was designed by Tumas Dingli and boasts an impressive titular painting by Luca Garnier and two superb murals by Francesco Zahra. The church also treasures other artefacts attributed to Guido Reni and Antonio Sciortino. The statue of St. Philip was created by Luigi Fontana in 1864 and is considered to be one of the greatest in Malta.

Go to the festa: The festa is also dedicated to St. Philip, and is celebrated in the second week of June. It offers spectacular aerial and ground fireworks, as well as a procession with the statue and brass bands playing cheerful marches.
