Marsa, Malta, is a town in the south eastern region of the country, with a population of 4 500 and the name Marsa literally means “the harbour”.
Marsa is located on Marsa Creek and it includes the Grand Harbour on which the town is based. A port was first established here by the Phoenicians. Further remains of Roman constructions have been found close by.
A vital spring for the Grand Harbour was located on site and it is thought a foundry of the Order of the Knights of St. John may have been located at here as well. Marsa was used as a camp by troops of the Ottoman Empire during the Great Siege and afterwards became a barony containing a number of vineyards. A noteworthy bridge was located in Marsa which facilitated the road from Birgu to the area of Valletta and vice versa and due to this area’s revival, Marsa property for sale is high on everyone’s agenda.
