Marsaxlokk Harbour

So here’s photo #20 from Malta and the last one for the time being. I’ll end where I began, in the harbour of the town of Marsaxlokk with some traditional luzzus.

Marsaxlokk is a traditional fishing village of about 3,500 inhabitants. The name is derived from the Arabic word marsa, meaning harbour and the Maltese word for south-east, xlokk. The town is a popular tourist destination, mainly because of the harbour, which is full of traditional Maltese fishing boats, called luzzus. They are painted in bright colours and have got an eye on the bow, which is believed to protect fishermen when they are out at sea.

I added an additional photo to the workshop, which shows some harbour activity.
