Marsaxlokk, the most photographed Maltese village, is one of the oldest ports in Malta. It’s name is derived from the words Mersa Sciroc, meaning “port to the south-east” named by the Saracens during their occupation of the Maltese islands from 870AD-1090AD
Being a natural harbour Marsaxlokk has been used by the various inhabitants of the Maltese islands. There is evidence of this at an archaeological site to the east of Marsaxlokk at Tas Silg, pronounced Tas silch. This area takes it’s name from a nearby Christian church dedicated to Our lady of the Snow, “silg” in maltese means snow, ice, hail or frost
Marsaxlokk is Malta’s largest fishing village accommodating 250 registered fishing vessels, these colourful boats come in a diverse range of shapes and sizes ranging from the large modern “skuna”, the medium sized traditional maltese boat “luzzu” to the small “fregatina” (rowing boat). Despite the different sizes and ages of the boats, all the boats are painted in the traditional colours of yellow, blue and green, many of them have the “eyes of Osiris” on the prow of the boat.
A statue of the patron saint of fisherman St Andrew stands proudly in Marsaxlokk square looking towards the sea.
Another beautiful statue of Our Lady in a luzzu stands above Marsaxlokk church looking out towards the sea.
Marsaxlokk church is dedicated to Our Lady of the Rosary The Madonna of Pompeii, there are various village feasts (festa) with religious processions and spectacular firework displays in honour of Our Lady, 8th May, 1st Sunday in August and 1st Sunday in October. Inside the church one can view the statue of the Madonna and Child, which came from Lecce in Italy in 1900.

The Maltese archipelago consists of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino. Malta, the largest island, is 237 sq. kms in area Gozo is 68 sq. kms and Comino, 2 sq. kms.
The population numbers circa 400,000. Of these, 28,000 live in Gozo. Comino is only inhabited by a few farmers. Because of their strategic position, Malta and Gozo have been inhabited for the past 7,000 years. The two islands have a long and varied prehistoric period: Neolithic, Copper and Bronze age civilisations lasted more than 4,000 years one can still admire vestiges of those remote times in form of impressive stone temples, a unique hypogeum and remains of skilful handicrafts.
The first known people to settle in Malta were the Phoenicians, who reached these shores on their trading ventures in the 9th century BC. They were succeeded by their Punic kinsmen, the Carthaginians. During the second Punic War in the 3rd century BC, the local inhabitants sided with the Romans and the island was granted the status of Federata Civita and started to form part of the Roman Empire.
Everything is available that you will need for a comfortable relaxing holiday.
