The Three Cities
Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua are the cities across the Grand Harbour from Valletta known as the Three Cities of Malta. It is to be said that the Maltese living in the area still call the cities Birgu, L’Isla and Bormla respectively. In the 17 th century the Order of St John decided to protect these cities by building two lines of defence known as the Cottonera lines and the Margarita Lines. Under the British the three cities were a hive of activity as the Grand Harbour became the home of the Royal Navy.
Cospicua boasts of a baroque parish church, built in the 1637 and refurbished later, dedicated to the Immaculate Conception. Originally known as Bormla, Cospicua was given its impressive name by Grand Master Marc Antonio Zondadari in early 18th Century.
With the development that has taken place in the last decades, the three cities are now attracting Maltese and visitors alike who are buying property and converting it to state of the art homes.
