Gudja is a village located on a small hill close to the Malta International Airport and almost forms part of the village of Zejtun. Gudja has 2,901 inhabitants living in an area of 2.3 km2 and the village dates back to the 14th century. The medieval church St Mary Ta’ Bir Miftuh, which is one of the first twelve parishes in Malta, and the narrow winding streets of Gudja bear witness just how old the village is. The Gudja parish church is the only church in Malta with three bell towers and is dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. The oldest procession statue in Malta can be found in this church.
Close to Gudja we find Malta International Airport, Luqa and Zejtun
