In-Naxxar

It’s not easy to determine when the village of Naxxar began to form itself. What is sure is that thousands of years ago, there already existed some form of life in Naxxar. Evidence of this is given by the caves of tal-Qattara and of San Brinkaw; megalithic remains from the Bronze Age at tal-Qadi and Qaliet Marku, furrows in the rocks which begin from is-Salina to it-Tarġa as well as further up near Għadira tal-Wej which probably formed themselves during the Bronze Age; Punic graves found at the site of the Primary school of Naxxar, and also in San Ġorġ and Leli Falzon streets; as well as catacombs at Salina and at Magħtab.
