The village is complimented with beautiful architecture. Gorgeous immaculately kept townhouses dot the quaint streets and allies. Għargħur is snuggly tucked in-between it’s not too far away from Central Malta but just remote enough to be considered a quiet retreat.
Village life and traditions are still at the heart of the community. The feast of St. Bartholomew is celebrated at the end of August, and this is where the village more than makes up for its size, with its grand celebrations.
