Santa Venera is a town located in the central part of the Mediterranean island of Malta with a population of approximately 7,000 residents. It has a rich history dating back to the medieval period. The town is named after Saint Venera and its history is closely tied to the development of the Maltese archipelago.

History and Places of Interest

The Old Church of Santa Venera underwent significant historical transformations: originally constructed in 1473, it underwent expansion in 1500, reconstruction between 1658 and 1688 and further renovations in the 19th century. In 1610, Grandmaster Alof de Wignacourt played a pivotal role in funding the construction of the area’s landmark, the Wignacourt Aqueduct. This aqueduct served the purpose of transporting water from springs in Rabat and Dingli to the capital city of Valletta, passing through several towns, including Santa Venera. The project was successfully completed in 1615.

Constructed around 1730, Casa Leoni, also recognized as Palazzo Manoel, features a remarkable history. The palace, complemented by an expansive garden, opened a portion of its grounds to the public in 1977, now known as Romeo Romano Gardens.
