This is also part of the Birzebbugia waterfront. Here you can see a very small beach and behind it a nice restaurant where one can come have dinner and enjoy the evening breeze (or not) of a Maltese summer evening .

Translated this means : 'bread with oil'. Now this may sound a little strange for some of you , however to all the Maltese or to those of you out there who have been to our island and tried this it will bring images and an enjoyable taste of this local item.
So this ''hobz biz-zejt'' consists of thick slices of bread, best being either the maltese bread or the 'ftira' (as shown here) spread with either fresh tomato or tomato paste, topped with olives, tuna, capers, slices of raw onion, lettuce, salt , pepper and a good drizzle of olive oil.

It also boasts an impressive cross-section of sacred art, famous paintings, a coin collection, Roman antiquities and original documents from the time of the Inquisition. The museum also contains a particularly rich collection of music manuscripts and there is a superb collection of woodcuts by Albrecht Duhrer.
