Ghajn Tuffieha and Gnejna Sea Inlets (Ref: pfm110043)

  A fantastic panorama view of the two sea inlets at Ghajn Tuffieha Bay (tat-tarag) and Gnejna and the clay hills that separate them. Ghajn Tuffieha is generally translated to “The Apple’s Eye“, however (and I stand to go against general perception here) as a small kid I remember getting my hands on a very old book of fables which contained a short story of fairies living on the small island of Malta in a place where a magical apple tree grew right in the middle of a spring of water. In Maltese the “The Apple’s Spring” is also translated to...

Wardija – St.Simon Chapel (Ref: pfm140180)

A chapel in the middle of nowhere. St. Simon Chapel in Wardija was built by Grandmaster Perellos, it was deconsecrated in 1616. After being rebuilt, the new chapel was blessed by Canon Dun Felic Cutajar on 22 April 1868. This small but beautiful neo-gothic chapel stands beside Qannotta castle and dominates the valley. Sadly it is deteriorating rapidly and the grounds are overgrown with huge weeds. It is said that its titular which was painted by Silvio Micallef, represented St Simon holding a large Saw. No one seems to know where this painting ended up. Source:...
