Where you'll live
Lija is a small village in the centre of Malta forming part of the “Three Villages” together with Balzan and Attard. The centre of the all towns are known as Urban Conservation Areas, meaning that any real estate development within this area has to ensure that the existing character of the area is retained. Any structural works have to keep to the traditional and historical architectural features that include wooden balconies, iron railings and carved stone, thereby preserving the beauty of the area. In addition to a Baroque parish church and seven other small chapels, Lija also has several antique Houses of Character, and as the host of the annual Maltese Citrus Festival the village is also home to plenty of citrus gardens. It is also well known for its yearly feast offering a spectacular display of fireworks, which attracts thousands of locals and tourists in the first week of August. As in its neighbouring village Attard, shops and markets in Lija are available within walking distance for your day-to-day needs, including restaurants and cafes, and there has also been an increase in entertainment and commercial enterprises.
