About Fgura

 

Fgura is a town in the Central Eastern Region of Malta. It has a population of 12 000. Its northern fringes are bordered by the Cottonera Lines of fortifications and it borders  Żabbar to the east and Paola and Tarxien to the West. Fgura expanded to the outskirts of the Grand Harbour area and is one of the fastest-growing towns of Malta, being one of the foremost commercial areas in the central-southern part of the island. It also has one of the highest population densities in the country.

The patron saint of Fgura is Our Lady of Mount Carmel and an annual feast in her honour is celebrated on the second Sunday of July. Fgura also has one of the most peculiar shaped churches in Malta, built in the shape of a tent.

In Phoenician times a settlement existed in the area of which six tombs were found discovered, dating to the 3rd or 4th century B.C. These contained skeletons, remains of animals, pottery and other Bronze materials and objects.

Lying inland from the Three Cities, Fgura was influenced by the growth of the Malta Dockyards. Places of interest are the Parish Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Il-Monument tas-Salib (The Cross Monument), Reggie Miller Square, Patri Redent Gauci Gardens, George Stevens Square.
