72 This is the Roman Villa façade. On behalf of the Malta Challenges I thank all those who joined this walk. I hope you enjoyed the day as much as I did and look forward to seeing you again in our next one. Also I would like to thank you for the donations we received which totalled Lm6.
71 This is the rear part of the Roman Villa. Unfortunately, this rich town house was reduced to ruins by the Arab overlords who ruled the island after the 9th century. Part of the site was, in fact, utilized as a Moslem burial ground. The graves can still be seen at the back of the Museum. In 1924, the site was built over for better protection, and the entire structure is now a Museum of Roman Antiquities .
63 It would be great had there been a museum where all this type of machinery are displayed. However, it would be quite a huge expensive task to restore and place them. Well I want to do my bit, by at least photographing them.
58 We stopped at Bahrija which you can see it in the back ground, had a quick drink in one of the bars and headed off once again to reach our final destination which was Rabat . Bahrija is well known among us Maltese for one of our favourite dishes which is the rabbit meal and for St. Martin ’s feast.
