Marsaxlokk  San Lucjan  Marnisi Area

2nd August 2017

Meeting Point:   Marsaxlokk Parish Church

Meeting Time 5.45pm. Starting  Time 6.00pm.

We meet near Marsaxlokk Parish Church, close to the bus stop MARSAXLOKK, nos. 81, 119, 210.  Start by walking in Triq Xatt is-Sajjieda.  Pass the 1715 Knights era Vendome Tower or Redoubt, now the headquarters of Marsaxlokk F.C.  We go on the small beach and pass a square concrete block. Continue all the way up till reaching St. Lucian Tower, built by Grand Master Wignacourt between 1610 and 1611.  In 1715 a semi circular battery was added and later the British built more fortification walls and gun emplacements between 1872 and 1878. Continue around the fort and observe the caponies in each corner of the ditch. We stop for a while in front of the entrance to the fort and continue down Triq ilQajjenza, keeping close to the sea.  Pass the huge oil tanks and enter a narrow path between fields till we emerge into Triq San Lucjan and go left.  At Y junction go right to see the Knights era Kavallerizza which was a horse riding school.  We go into a very narrow path and emerge on asphalted road and ahead we pass Palazzo Marnisi and soon emerge into the main road.  We pass the niche of Christ the Redeemer.  This old statue was once part of the Zejtun Good Friday Procession which goes back to 1742 and was later put here, after it was replaced with a new one.  Cross the road and continue down and ahead turn left by the roundabout with Wied Hal Ginwi on our left till we reach a wide area, cross the road and go behind Marsaxlokk Parish Church and around it and back to our cars.

Time: 2.15 hours.   Rating:  Moderate to easy.

Meeting Time: 6.00 p.m.
Friday lst September, 2017

We start the walk at 6.00 pm. sharp, from 2 destinations.  Those coming with private cars start from beside Sannat Church, Pjazza Santa Margerita, and guided by a walk leader walk down Triq ta Sannat.  Those using public transport, start from the Victoria Rabat, Bus Terminus and guided by another walk leader walk up to Pjazza San Frangisk and continue till we meet the other group at tac-Cawla Area, and we continue together till we reach the Ghajn tal-Hasselin.  Ahead we continue upwards till reaching the Munxar Parish Church.  Continue up a long way till we are in the very narrow road to Sannap Cliffs and Prominade. We stop for a while here.
After, we go up by the edge of the cliffs, and walk all the way, till we reach the outskirts of Sannat.  We emerge in open space and go left to the road, passing a nice small picnic area and down into Triq Dun Luqa and ahead we reach the Parish Church Square, where we have our pizza.  After the pizza a hired coach will take us back to the Gozo Ferry.
