Zebbug

Zebbug has a village-like atmosphere although it has been a large residential area for centuries, at least since it was elevated to `city’ status by Grand Master de Rohan in 1777. Its city status is marked by the monumental arch on the main approach road. Zebbug was for centuries the main agricultural village of Malta and the centre for the cash crop, cotton. Zebbug houses some magnificent patricians’ houses and palazzos and fine examples of 16th to 18th century domestic architecture.
