St.Matthew Chapel – Tal-Maqluba Qrendi (Ref: pfm150152)

  Tal-Maqluba is an unique location in Qrendi hosting a sinkhole created in the 13th Century. At the entrance of the path leading to the sinkhole stands this quaint chapel dedicated to St.Matthew.   On the 23rd November 1343, Malta experienced one of its most severe winter storms ever, possibly accompanied by an earthquake. It was at this time that il-Maqluba was formed. This is a natural depression formed by the collapse of the underlying limestone strata, known as a doline in geological language. It is now a sinkhole, collecting rainwater from a three-mile radius and helping to...

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...

A long exposure panoramic shot of the Silent City of Mdina by night as taken from the bottom of Mtarfa hill. The history of Mdina traces back more than 4000 years.
