Today we spent more than an enjoyable Sunday at Qrendi! The ingredients to make an agricultural festival a day to remember were all there…
A warm welcome by the first citizen, David Schembri, always ready to help you to discover his lovely village with its traditions and stories!
The people of Qrendi so friendly and so caring, doesn’t matter if they were farmers with “potato blood in their veins” or politicians, they are all friends and proud to be so!
And of course the Queen of the feast, the exquisite potato which is super appreciated also at an international level. Just to write some numbers every year 6,000 tonnes of potato are exported from Malta!
Inside San Mattew Chapel was set up a local artists and artisans exhibition of devotional statues.
A curiosity, the Chapel hosts a Spanish Madonna statue actually a gift from the German Knight Wolgang Von Guttenberg.
This is a secret: the dress in lace under the white one (that you can see in the pictures below) is the authentic of 1700. The one which the statue wore is ex-voto of a bride of 70 years ago… wow!
