Mgarr environs July 12, 2008

Another early morning walk led by Simon.

Starting near Kastell Zammitellu, we headed north, passing through beautiful garigue areas known as Ta’ Garibaldi and ix-Xaghra ta’ Ghar is-Sienja. We reached the Roman baths at Ghajn Tuffieha, and eventually Ras il-Gebel, from where we followed a footpath towards il-Ballut and il-Palma on the Wardija Ridge. We continued on the ridge of il-Hotba ta’ San Martin and returned to our starting point through Ta’ Mrejnu & Ta’ Darrenzi.

Some photos below.
