    Visit Bir Mula Heritage (House and Museum)

    Museum
    3 more images

    This house is privately owned by my good friend, John Vella, and is definitely worth a visit. There is an exhibition all year round which may be visited on Tuesdays to Sundays (except Mondays) from 10.00 to 12.00 hrs. The exhibition includes a read-through narrative on the history of Cospicua (popularly known as Bormla, which is the Maltese translation of Cospicua).

    John bought the house intending it to be his home. He discovered ancient artefacts in the house and when he realized that it was over 1000 years old he decided to convert it into museum for all the public to visit. It now also houses items found in the Cottonera (Three Cities) area and comprises a history and heritage museum, an activity hall and the old farmhouse hall. Activities are held during the year and these may be found on the museum web page below (click on Events). Books on Malta, videos and souvenirs are available at the museum.

    Entrance fees are: LM1.00 per adult and children accompanied by an adult are allowed in free. More photos of Bir Mula can be found in my Travelogue.

    Old Dock, Cospicua

    The huge dockyards of Malta are associated with all of the three cities, as well as with Marsa and Paola, but Cospicua is perhaps the place most associated with them. The city was bombed to smithereens during WWII because of this.
    The dock seen here is (I think) the oldest, originally built by the knights and (from the look of it) no longer in use. I expect it's a bit small - and when you see the rest of The Grand Harbour's docks, you'll see what I mean.

    Another Church

    A Church, Cospicua

    No idea what this church is, nothing in the guidebooks or marked on our maps (in fact Cospicua is barely mentioned at all). It's nice looking though, and quite prominent on the road down from Senglea to Cospicua.

    Church Of The Immaculate Conception

    Church Of The Immaculate Conception, Cospicua

    The church dates from the 1600s and is the largest, grandest building remaining in Cospicua (if you exclude the docks). Standing before it, with steps either side leading up to the Church, is a memorial to the victims of WWII. It's an angel holding a crown (a symbol of Britain) and a Catholic cross (a symbol of the Maltese people).
