You will first drive to Tarxien Temples which consist of three separate, but attached, temple structures. The main entrance is a reconstruction dating from 1956, when the whole site was restored. At the same time, many of the decorated slabs discovered on site were relocated indoors for protection at the Museum of Archaeology in Valletta. The second visit is to Zejtun, traditionally known as Città Beland, a title conferred by the grandmaster of the Order of the Knights of Malta, Ferdinand von Hompesch zu Bolheim in 1797. The first stop is the Museum of Art and History which houses a collection of paintings, sculptures, memorabilia and archaeological findings pertaining to the parish of Zejtun and its surrounding areas. Statues and items forming part of the Good Friday Procession are on permanent display within the same museum. You will then visit Luqa Briffa Garden known in Żejtun as Ġnien tal-Kmand. Your next stop is Marsaxlokk, a small, picturesque, traditional, fishing village in the South Eastern Region of the island. The village is known for the Marsaxlokk Market, which takes place along the seafront. The village is also known for the national boats which are the Luzzu and the Kajjik. These boats serve the fishermen on fishing near the shore. The last stop is The Delimara Peninsula which forms half of Marsaxlokk coast. The peninsula is mostly known for its two tourist oriented bays: St Peter’s Pool and Kalanka Bay. It is also known as the location of the primary power station in Malta, the Delimara power station. A lighthouse, a British fort and the remains of a Hospitaller battery can also be found on the peninsula. From May to October, tour will include a swimming stop at Kalanka Bay. From November to April, tour will include a country side walk around this beautiful area.
