Discover the Charms of Mgarr, Malta

The motto of Mgarr is “small, with a big heart” and it’s easy to see why. Even though it’s less than seven square miles in size (and has a population of just under 4,000), this charming town on the northwest coast of Malta island is home to some of the country’s most renowned cuisine and the world’s oldest historic sites.

To make the most of your time in this little slice of Maltese paradise, head to the center of Mgarr for striking architecture, quaint shops and restaurants, and the Parish Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven. Its unique oval dome is one of the largest in the world, and funds to build “The Egg Church” were paid by local parishioners through the sale of more than 300,000 eggs.

If you’d like to dig into history, explore the Megalithic Temples of Malta. These prehistoric temples (six of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites) were built between 3,600 and 700 BC. They are some of the oldest free-standing structures on Earth—and two of these complexes, the Ta’ Hagrat Temples and Skorba Temples, can be found in Mgarr.
