This Sunday, 2 April, all roads in Malta and Gozo lead to the little village of Mgarr for the eleventh consecutive Festa Frawli – Strawberries Festival. Similar to last year, the peak visiting time will be between 10.ooam and 5.00pm.  However, large crowds flock the main square and streets of this village much earlier than 10 in the morning.

In a nutshell, one can say that this Spring festival offers something for everyone. It does focus on the younger ones – the children with various eco-activities and organised games. If you are visiting the Festa Frawli on Sunday, you will find an incredible choice of all sorts of food with one common ingredient – the bright red local strawberries.

de Valette’s dagger after 219 years!

De Valette’s dagger back to Malta

In mid March 2017 the famous dagger of Grand Master de Valette (for whom Malta’s capital city is named after), was back to Malta from Louvre Museum in Paris.

It is currently being exhibited at the National Museum of Archaeology in Republic Street Valletta. However, for conservation reasons, de Valette sword was not brought over to Malta for viewing.

As HeritageMalta stated: When Napoleon Bonaparte took possession of the sword and dagger in 1798, he sent the sword to France but kept the dagger for himself until his death in 1821. The sword and dagger were reunited once again when they were displayed for the first time at the Louvre from 1852 onwards.

Sincerely it was a very special feeling seeing La Valette’s dagger for the first time so close…. after 219 years.

If you are on the Maltese islands, de Valette dagger is definitely a must-see till 9 July 2017.

Special thanks for the excellent cooperation between the Louvre Museum in Paris and Heritage Malta which made this truly historical visit possible.

Gozo is the perfect island for some amazing coastal and country walks. Today we are uploading some pictures we’ve taken this afternoon during one of the walks from accommodation at Mediterranea Seaviews Gozo Holiday Home in the village-by-the-sea of Ghajnsielem, Gozo.

Just few days before the official beginning of Spring, Gozo is a verdant carpet full of flowers wherever you look.  Tranquil and off the beaten track walks are the perfect outdoor activity for any age group visiting the island of Gozo.  Perfect Gozo weather at around 19 degrees Celsius makes the island the best option for incredibly relaxing Gozo walking holidays.
