Where is Bir Mula Heritage?
Our Museum is at the Harbour city of Bormla (Cospicua)
Bormla is the oldest inhabited location in the Malta Grand Harbour area. After the Neolithic period the people of Bormla based their living on maritime activity and commerce. It developed into a cradle of maritime crafts and other activities till World War II. It's geography and topography contributed to its conspicuous fame. The city is also known as Citta' Cospicua a title conferred to the city in 1720 - 1722 by Grand Master Zondadari, who pronounced the title in praise for its conspicuous five hills which at the time were being fortified by both the St. Margerita Lines (1638 - 1736) and the Cottonera Lines (1670 -1736).
