Mgarr


Mgarr is a typical rural village situated in an isolated region in the northwest of the mainland of Malta. It is surrounded with rich farmland and vineyards and many of its 3,014 inhabitants are engaged in some sort of agricultural activity.

Mġarr boasts of two important prehistoric sites. The prehistoric site of Ta' Ħaġrat, which is still in a good state of preservation, stands in a field near the village centre, while that known as Ta' Skorba, excavated in 1963, lies just outside the village.

The parish church of St. Mary is a miniature copy of the Mosta Rotunda. Its building commenced in 1912 and its construction depended on free labour and on the generous contributions earned by the parishioners from the sale of farm products. It stands on high ground and its elevated terrace offers a charming view of the fertile fields and of the neighbouring hillsides. The local village feast of St. Mary is celebrated annually on the first Sunday after 15thAugust.

Although Mġarr today has grown quite large, it is still considered a country town with fresh clean air away from the major busy towns of Malta. Mġarr's surroundings embrace several interesting spots like Binġemma, Wardija, Fomm ir-Riħ, Ghajn Tuffieha and Ġnejna Bay. Mgarr is also known for its cuisine which specializes in the traditional Maltese Rabbit stew and horse meat.
