About Ħaż-Żebbuġ

Ħaż-Żebbuġ, also known by its title Città Rohan is one of the oldest cities in Malta. The name of the town, literally translated to olives. Its name was derived from the large olive groves which surrounded the city centre. In 1380, a parish church dedicated to St. Philip of Agira was built, joining together three former communities namely Ħal-Dwinm, Ħal-Muxi and Ħal-Mula, forming the village known till this day as Ħaż-Żebbuġ. With over 11,000 residents, the historical city of Ħaż-Żebbuġ is known for its impressive architecture, traditional Maltese festas and a number of prominent personalities including Mikiel Anton Vassalli, Dun Karm Psaila and Dun Mikiel Xerri!
