View of Xemxija

The locality of St Paul’s Bay is one of the largest localities on the island. Its boundaries start from part of Bidnija, and extends to Burmarrad, Wardija, Qawra, Bugibba, St Paul’s Bay centre, Xemxija, Limbordin, Pwales and San Martin. St Paul’s Bay is both a touristic, residential, agricultural and fisherman’s locality.

Apart from many archaeological sites, Wardija Hill boasts of six `Jus Patronatus` chapels dedicated to the Immaculate Conception, St. Simon, St. George, Our Lady of Grace, St. John the Baptist and the most attractive chapel of Our Lady of the Forsaken. They were built by the noble families that owned the land to provide a place of worship for the farmers that worked their land.
