The Three Villages
Attard, Balzan and Lija are popularly known as The Three Villages because of the many characteristic features they have in common.
Balzan, though relatively a small village, has an interesting history going back to the 14th Century. In the 16th century most of the dwelling houses were farmhouses. In 1655 Balzan was erected a separate parish from the larger parish Birkirkara of which it previously formed part. During the 17th and 18th centuries wealthy noble families started to settle in Balzan, building large houses in the older part of the village. Today, Balzan still retains the characteristics of a typical Maltese village with narrow winding streets and blind alleys that can still be seen in the older part and where one can admire the vernacular architecture.
