Books on Zejtun, its history, architecture and people

A number of books have been published in the last century specifically on this town, its history, architecture and people. There have been also other publications which give an overview of the Maltese villages’ and town’s history and others about the Maltese architecture, in which one could also find detailed reference to this town.
