First of all, I live in Malta, which is a very small country situated in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea. It is an archipelago made up of three main islands (Malta, Gozo and Comino) and a couple of very small inhabited ones. Together they only cover approx. 300 km² and the population is approx. 400,000.
By these values you can imagine the small population that our 'cities' have. I live in a village called Siggiewi which has a population of only about 9,000. It is rather an old village, and we don't really have any entertainment places here. Enough babbling, here are a few pictures of some beautiful parts in Siggiewi:
Siggiewi is located on a plateau, this picture was taken from one of the higher areas.
|The area surrounding the church is the older part of the village. It has lots of these narrow roads and antique houses as pictured below. People used to build their homes near the church as they felt safer.|
|This part gains a lot of attraction in Summer. I usually go swimming with my family near that cave on the right|
|This is a zone in Siggiewi called Buskett, which is like a small forest. It's the perfect place for picnics :)|
|This picture was taken from Buskett. The Verdala Palace (in the top part of the picture) is the summer residence of our president.|
I hope you enjoyed reading about where I live! Lots of love to all of you from Malta :)
