May 22, 2011 Marsaxlokk - Delimara Walk Part 1

As can be seen from the photos below, the weather was not that good for this scenic and historical walk through the Marsaxlokk, Xrobb l-Ghagin and Delimara areas. But this was made up by the the detailed information that Godwin gave us on the various places of interest we passed through, starting from the Marsaxlokk parish church itself.

Walk leaders: Godwin Darmanin and Mario Farrugia

Distance: just over 12 km

Time: 3 hours

Some photos below.
