Overview Baħrija_section_0

Two churches are present in Baħrija, an old one (which was re-inaugurated on Saturday 19 October 2013), and the newer church, built in 1984, which is dedicated to Saint Martin of Tours and which is currently in use. Baħrija_sentence_3

The main feast in Baħrija is that of Saint Martin of Tours, which is celebrated annually on 11 November. Baħrija_sentence_4

This feast is associated with an old tradition where a bag full of an assortment of nuts, sweets and fresh fruit is given to young children on the day. Baħrija_sentence_5

Another tradition present exclusively in Baħrija is the annual fair which is held on the Sunday before the feast, where an assortment of goods are given away in a number of lotteries. Baħrija_sentence_6

Baħrija is also famous for its rabbit cooking restaurants. Baħrija_sentence_7

Bahrija is one of the highest places in Malta, therefore the weather here is cooler than that of the lower land (it is also exposed to the cold northern winds coming over the sea). Baħrija_sentence_8

Most of the north of Malta is visible from this village, but the south west of Gozo (including Xlendi) is also visible, and on clear still nights, a line of street lights is visible on the horizon to the north, where Sicily is. Baħrija_sentence_9

Although Bahrija has little rich soil, much of its land is used for agriculture, mostly growing grape vines and other common fruit that can withstand the harsh heat of the summer and the lack of soil. Baħrija_sentence_10

Bahrija is a good place to search for walks. Baħrija_sentence_11

For a cliff climb, there is the Fomm ir-Rih walk, or for Maltese heritage, the Victoria lines start at Kuncizzjoni. Baħrija_sentence_12
