Paola Square - Paola


Paolo what in Maltese we call 'Rahal il-gdid' meaning new town, well not so new really but hey that's just the name. Today I take you thanks to some photos taken by Laetitia to the centre of Paola. I had mentioned once that we have three towns where to go shopping for clothes , jewels shoes hifi etc... and these are Sliema (shown a photo in previous posts) Valletta and Paola. Of course there is also a small shopping arcade in Gozo , Malta's other island, and one can find the some shops in the local towns and villages but the big shopping can be done here. Paola is 15 minutes drive away from Birzebbugia it has no beaches. Paola's attraction apart from the shopping is the Neolithic Temples and the Hypogeum, which are found in the part called Tarxien. I might go and get some photos from there to show you these temples.

Thanks for the "lesson" about shopping possibilities! Have you any money left for shopping after the vacations?

Looking forward to see the temples!

Interesting sepia tone photos. Nice post. Looks like the middle 50s or the bus does.

Great photos of the square. I also really enjoyed the fireworks display from a few days ago! Both you and your friend take great photos and pride in your area.

Thanks for visiting my NorthBayPhoto blog. As for Tim Hortons showing up in Malta, I don't think they will but we do have a Tim Hortons store in Afghanistan for our troops so you never know, they may expand.
