Breakfast at the hotel.

The art of lace making is popular in both Malta and Gozo. Its roots can be traced from the cotton trade of the Maltese Islands along he maritime trade route with Genoa since 1530. It was first promoted in the old nun’s convents at Mdina, the old capital of Malta, and in the Borgo cities developed around the Grand Harbour after the arrival of the Knights of Malta in 1530. The craft was passed down through different generations and many lace makers, mainly women practice this craft in their own homes or private space. Some women can still be seen practicing lace making outdoors.

We join a group of women to practice lace making at a traditional Gozitan farmhouse located on the way to the village of Gharb. Participants will have the opportunity to feel the calm of the Gozitan atmosphere and experience for themselves the lifestyle of the old lace makers when the craft was at its peak.

In the afternoon we join a Bocci club for to learn and practice this traditional sport that is still practiced till this day. The sport of bocci, sometime known as ‘bocce’, is a variation of the metal-ball game known as boules. Bocci originated in the early Roman empire and was introduced to Malta during the rule of the Knights of St. John.

We will end the day with a visit to the Megalithic Temples of Ggantija, the oldest free-standing monuments in the world, even pre-dating the pyramids of Egypt. The hard-wearing Coralline Limestone is used extensively, while the softer Globigerina Limestone is reserved for the inner furnishings, such as altars, decorative slabs and libation holes for liquid offerings. Ggantija was a hub for community gatherings, rituals, ceremonies, and celebrations to honour the gods and seek blessings for fertility and prosperity.
