PostSubject: Malta, Senglea   Fri Oct 23, 2009 11:10 pm

Hi, I’m Ferran, and I’m talking from Senglea: a small fortified city in the east of Malta, more exactly in the Grand Harbour area. This city, is one of the Three Cities, with Cospicua and Vittoriosa. This city is also called Isla.
The area of this city is only 0,2km2 and there areonly 3200 people. It is the smallest and the most densely populated city in Malta.
Senglea is a very beautiful peninsula, with a very interesting history, and because of that there are a lot of interesting statues and basilicas, like the Statue of il-Bambina, the statue of Jesus the Redmeeder…This city is closely related with the Mediterranean Sea, and it has an important yacht port. This city is one of the most important elements of the Grand Harbour panorama.

Senglea is also working, on a twinning basis with Cassino and the region of Abbruzzo in Italy, on a youth exchange to study English. With regards to the rest of Europe, this city is also working with:
- AVEC, (Alliance of European Cultural Cities) which was created in 1997, forms a European Network of Historical Cities and Territories. The members of this association are committed in a policy of sustainable development based mainly on valorising their heritage.
- Qualicities (quality-cities) It is a kind of a reward to the historic towns and territories’ sustainable development’ policies in Europe.


Senglea also has contacts and works on EU programmes with Hamm (Germany), Austria, Poland, and Bradford.
