Religious significance aside, this holiday sees thousands upon thousands of individuals across the islands take some time off work to make the most of Maltese summer. Many also use this public holiday as an opportunity to spend a weekend on the sister island, or perhaps even abroad.
Thousands of others, however, stay put to sample the Santa Marija festivities going down in a whopping eight different towns and villages across the islands. From day-long marches and processions to well-attended masses, this holiday is the climax of countless hours of hard work put in by festa enthusiasts all over the nation.
So, without further ado, here are all the towns and villages across Malta and Gozo celebrating Santa Marija. Take your pick!
