Marsaskala – Wied il-Ghajn
Marsascala Parish, 1999, 150 pp., illus.
As its title implies, Marsaskala – Wied il-Għajn by Canon Joe Abela focuses on this picturesque village and its environs, right from prehistoric to modern times. It is profusely illustrated with many fine colour and black and white photographs which throw light on the locality’s past and the present. The book, which carries a foreword by the parish priest, Fr Anton Cassar, was published to mark the 50th anniversary of the erection of Marsascala as a parish, and to commemorate the consecration of the parish church. Canon Abela’s book is the first ever on Marsascala and text is in Maltese and English.
