A Tower built by the British in 1848 that served as an Important means of communication on our islands in those days,.

Sightseeing
Down the road from our farmhouse one finds a scenic walk along the route of this picturesque valley between quaint Gharghur and affluent Madliena. Definitely nowhere near densely populated Swieqi actually located on the other side, between Madliena and Gharghur.

Found 5 minutes away from our farmhouse at the start of the valley that separates Gharghur from Birguma, is this curious miniature church so dear to the local villagers. It even has its own festa in September, complete with brass band music, fireworks and, as is always the case with Maltese villages, food! :)
