Malta is a country with many churches and, of course, each church has a patron saint. As a result, every week at least one church celebrates the feast of its patron saint. Here we are in St. Julian’s, celebrating the feast of St. Julian. This is a great opportunity for tourists to see many colorful costumes, hear wonderful bands and learn something about the history and costumes of ancient Malta. Most weeks, Malta celebrates more than one patron saint so that tourists have many options to travel, not too far, to these “Festas”. Restaurants and bars on the main streets set up outside tables for watching the activities while enjoying their food and drink.
