Mġarr is a small town in the Northern Region of Malta and a typical rural village situated in an isolated region, west of Mosta. It is surrounded with rich farmland and vineyards. Many of its 4000 inhabitants are farmers or are engaged in some sort of agricultural activity.
Mġarr has two important prehistoric sites: Ta’ Ħaġrat, which is still in a good state of preservation and Ta’ Skorba, excavated in 1963, which lies just outside the village. Mġarr was granted by the King of Sicily to the Inguanez family, and over time they sold it to the Falsone family. Over time, land was split up and given to all descendants.
Mġarr today has grown quite large, though still considered a country town with fresh clean air away from the major industrial towns of Malta. Mġarr’s rustic environs embrace several rustic spots like Binġemma, Wardija, Fomm ir-Riħ, Għajn Tuffieħa and Ġnejna Bay. San Andrea School and San Anton School are private schools located within one of Mġarr’s scenic valleys.
