Malta Experience - floor tiles!

Malta Experience - floor tiles!


Malta has great old floor tiles and here are photographs of some of them!


Casa Rocca Piccola, Valletta

These old Maltese floor tiles taken without a flash in the Casa Rocca Piccola, Valletta, Malta. Large house from the 15th century built by the Knights of St John. Then bought and lived in by 3 Maltese families.

It costs 7 euro for a one hour tour, you get to see 12 rooms upstairs then go through a restaurant down to the 2nd world war air raid shelter built for the public from the old water cistern. Then through a small passage up into the rare private garden (not many old houses in Valletta allowed gardens due to water shortages).

Is it worth 7 euros? ish. You get to see lots of old paintings and a few interesting objects (which i found more interesting than the house) but if you are tight on time and money perhaps there are better things to see. The highlight of the tour of Casa Rocca Piccola is getting to wind up and sound a 2nd world war air raid siren!

Ancient Maps of Malta/Melita

Ancient Maps of Malta/Melita found in Maltese Museums and houses. Not all the best quality as you cant use a flash to take photographs.

Casa Rocca Piccola, Valletta Malta


old silver surgery tools from the Casa Rocca Piccola, Valletta Malta


Casa Rocca Piccola, Valletta Malta is a 15th Century house with a few bit of interesting objects in them. Not the greatest of museums in Malta but worth a look if you like ancient house hold objects. The image above shows a silver surgical set of tools used by the Knights of St John. The silver reduced the amount of bacteria growing on them so a lot less infection and deaths resulting from surgery!

Zebbug Nightfeast - Medieval Market and historical re-enactment
« Reply #4 on: May 17, 2011, 03:13:03 »
Zebbug Nightfeast - Medieval Market and historical re-enactment

The Zebbug Nightfeast is a Medieval Market and re-enactment of Maltas history and historical periods of Maltese periods.

The Nightfeast Zebbug is not a massive Medieval Market but it has a number of interesting stands, displays, live arts and craft and live archery and crossbow shooting.

The Nightfeast Zebbug and Medieval Market starts around 7 and the historical re-enactment of Malta's past starts around 1945 with a march around the area of the town center of Zebbug and the Medieval Market.

Either they know of the Maltese tradition of turning up 1 to 2 hours late or they had not planned for it. There were not many people there to watch the parade but that meant the historical re-enactors had plenty of space to walk about.

After the parade they mingled with the crowd or went to shoot some bows and arrows or crossbow and bolts.

The foot treadle floor loom and the foot powered pottery wheel are good to watch and talk about. If you have ever done some pottery on a wheel you will know that the casual skill shown by the potter while powering the wheel is a great skill indeed.

For food and drink the local bars and restaurant are open around the main street with chairs and tables in the street and their are a couple of stalls selling the usual things seen at these like Imqaret (hot date cakes - dates deep fried in flaky pastry), maltese honey and the best food of the night, Maltese Traditional Nougat. The Beehive Brittle Nougat is made fresh and hot before your eyes on the stall and it does not smell as great as it tastss which is amazing. Hot and chewy when you buy the freshly made Nougat (made by Beehive from Zebbug, and even when it hardens overnight it is not a slab of concrete but perfect.

Earth Garden Festival Malta - free music festival
« Reply #5 on: June 07, 2011, 22:37:53 »




The Earth Garden Festival Malta is a fantastic free music festival and arts and craft market weekend that happens every year at Ta Qali National Park. All the action is found with the music but the Artisans Market and Art on display is very good.

During the day and late into the night the Earth Garden Festival Malta has lots of free music, bands and other music inspired events happening. The music areas include the main open area stage with plenty of shade and mattresses to lounge about on. There are a couple of smaller and more intimate areas in the trees around where the Artisans Market is held, one is more general music and the other is devoted to some of the best house and techno music you will hear on the island of Malta.



Earth Garden Festival Malta - free music events


On saturday of the Earth Garden Festival Malta there is a large music event that you have to pay to enter, normally the immense Maltese band Tribali play in this concert.

Malta's Artists



The Earth Garden Festival Malta artists - Joseph Bugeja (tel 99890703)

I thought the art work on the right was stunning and the one on the left was constructed very cleverly

The Earth Garden Festival Malta has free artwork of local Maltese artists displayed. The Earth Garden Festival Malta also has some of Malta's artists displaying and selling their art in the Artisans market.

I thought this Malta artists work was great, I liked the bright colours and simple nature of some of the artwork. Alistair Farrugia also had ethnic jewellery, clothes and other trinkets for sale on his stand. You can find more of Alistair Farrugia's work at the Aw Tribu! shop in Mosta.


artisans market


The Earth Garden Festival Malta is also famous for its Artisans Market where the standard and variety of the arts and crafts gets higher each year. I dont think you will find a better ethnic/hippy/new age market on the island of Malta.

The Earth Garden Festival Malta - spot the hippy's! The Earth Garden Festival Malta is a great day out and  a brilliant Maltese fair to go visit for a few hours or the whole day or 2.

Dude, I cannot help, but it looks for me so familiar, ... the pyramid with the eye ... the wife of Nimrod with it's son Marduk and the old city of Babylon ... sorry, but this was the first impression I got  :P
Maybe I watched too much conspiracy videos  :-\

Palazzo Parisio Naxxar Malta (Restaurant and Gardens)
« Reply #9 on: August 13, 2012, 04:16:53 »
Palazzo Parisio Naxxar Malta (Restaurant and Gardens)

Palazzo Parisio Naxxar Malta is a Restaurant with Gardens and one of the finest eating experiences on Malta and Gozo.

The food is delightful and the Palazzo Parisio Restaurant, Grounds and buildings are historic and add to the experience. The Palazzo Parisio is also not that expensive considering what you are paying for and enjoying.

The Palazzo Parisio is located opposite the Naxxar church and its entrance hides what is to come.

The Palazzo Parisio Restaurant offers food in an Italian format, so you can choose different courses and it offers traditional Maltese food. One of the highlights on the refreshments side is the Lemonade that tastes like old fashioned lemonade and not fizzy. If you are an Englishman in need of refreshment on the hot summer days then they do a pot of tea with 2 cups of teas worth in it.

If you live in Malta or especially if you are visiting on holiday then this is an experience not to miss. You are advised to book for afternoon lunches especially at the weekend. Enjoy!
