Heritage Malta Passport Visa holders invited to San Pawl Milqi

On Monday 4th November, all those students who have acquired their Heritage Malta Passport Visa are invited to attend to an exclusive tour of the archaeological site of San Pawl Milqi in Burmarrad.

This visa is given to students once they collect 10 different stamps in their passport during visits to ten different Heritage Malta sites and museums. Two adults may accompany each student for this special occasion.

The site of San Pawl Milqi gets its name from the small chapel of San Pawl Milqi that replaced the 15th century chapel of St Paul Bindichi in the mid-17th century, both of which were built on the remains of a Roman villa. This villa is traditionally connected with the house of Publius, and therefore the place where St Paul was welcomed by the First Citizen.

This event offers a unique opportunity to the students and the accompanying adults to visit this remarkable site which currently is open only by appointment.

There are four sessions available at 9.15, 10.15, 11.15 am and 12.15 pm. A maximum of 10 children are allowed within each session.

Each session will be divided in two parts, starting with a short tour of the site of San Pawl Milqi and following with an activity related to bee-keeping and honey making techniques.

Anyone allergic to bees should not participate. Due to the presence of bees on site, it is recommended that participants do not wear open shoes, heavy perfume and gel. The activity related to the bees will be only for the 10 children wearing protective clothing. No adults or small children will be allowed close, for safety reasons.

Event is free of charge and is open only to Heritage Malta Passport Visa holders. However, tickets have to be booked.

Tickets are available on a first-come-first-served basis from all Heritage Malta sites and museums. No tickets will be available on site and admission is subject to presenting pre-issued tickets, together with the Heritage Malta Passport and Visa.
