Cospicua Things to Do

  • Visit Bir Mula Heritage (House and...

    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...

  • The Dockyards

    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....

  • Another Church

    Loads of busses go through here, including any of the ones to Senglea and Vittoriosa, Kalkara, even Marsaxlokk. From Valletta it's only 15c for the fare.

  • Just before we go......

    Ok thats a brief look at Cospicua but before we visit Vittoriosa here one final shot of Dockyard Creek and all the boats moored there to enjoy before we go to the next place.

  • Cottonera Dry Docks

    The drydocks are Malta's largest industrial enterprise. There are seven docks in all with Cospicua joining Senglea to Vittoriosa at the head of Dockyard Creek behind Dock No.1, built in 1848. The largest is Dock No. 6 built by Chinese experts some years ago and can take the largest tankers and cruise liners in the world. The smallest Dock is No. 7...
