Fgura

About Fgura

Fgura is a town in the south of Malta. It is one of the 68 local councils.

Much of Fgura was built around the 1960s. However, the town has prehistoric roots - there are several tombs in the area - and there is evidence to suggest it was a settlement in Phoenician times. Fgura, lying inland from the Three Cities, was influenced by the growth of the dockyards, especially after World War II. Its northern fringes are bordered by the Cottonera Lines of fortifications while it merges with the towns of ┼╗abbar to the south and Tarxien to the West.
