In all we had a group of almost sixty people who met on the parish church parvis and started the tour at quarter to ten. Members of Friends of the Maritime Museum were amongst the persons present. There was also a good representation of non-Maltese speaking Zejtun residents how were extremely interested in our heritage.
The tour passed through Triq Ħabel ix-Xgħir to the Transfiguration (is-Salvatur) chapel. The group visited the interior of this chapel as it also did with the other chapel visited – Saint Clement’s. Along the route there were various stops in front of a number of buildings including a medieval building in Triq San Bastjan (Ħal-Tmikki) and what was the house of Clement Tabone in Triq San Klement.
At the lowest part of the town, we had the opportunity to see the medieval interface between the rural and the urban areas of the town along Ħajt il-Wied. The group had also the opportunity to enter into the courtyard of Villa Cagliares after which we started our way up to the town’s main square via Triq il-Kbira.
The tour was led by Wirt iż-Żejtun president, Perit Ruben Abela.
