Birgu also known as Vittoriosa one of Malta’s oldest and most historic cities hosts this beautiful and enchanting Feast, Birgu Candlelight!

The huge success of this initiative brought Birgu Candlelights to become an annual national event!

The aim was to highlight Birgu’s historic and architectural beauty, a complete success indeed!

Birgu Candlelights is a very romantic event, now incorporated in Birgufest. It is a unique event where all the streets and Birgu alleys are lit up with a gentle glow by thousands of candles of all kinds.

Birgufest has now developed into a huge event offering numerous activities throughout the festival. The historic re-enactments, extended and cheaper museum entrances, and the opening up to the public of other venues of interest including churches…

Thanks to Birgufeast the immense historic value of this city it’s masterfully highlighted!

In addition, food stalls offering both Maltese and other food, various musical concerts, ranging from classical to modern, and various exhibitions, make this event truly an outing with something to suit all tastes and ages!


Thanks for watching 🙂
