Maltese Ghorfa

The Maltese ‘Ghorfa’ – a small humble building in the fields on the wayside between Qrendi and Siggiewi.

More details on the Ghorfa can be found on the following link:

“One of the functions of an  għorfa was to provide shelter where farmers could escape from the harsh summer sun and shelter from the winter rains while working on their land. Agricultural tools, produce and animals could also be kept in the għorfa.”
