|Il-Ħamrun is one of the suburbs on the Maltese islands and is around 2 miles from the Capital city il-Belt Valletta (Città Umilissima). It is built on a plain rising softly at the vicinity of Tas-Samra. The roads of il-Ħamrun are straight except for a couple of narrow streets down the police station.
|Il-Ħamrum was taken from three parishes , that of Ħal Qormi (Città Pinto), of Birkirkara and Floriana. The limits of il-Ħamrun reached further out than they do nowadays but when Santa Venera and il-Marsa became parishes in their own right large chunks of il-Ħamrun were taken from its jurisdiction. Il-Ħamrun’s motto is ‘Propera Augesco which means ‘I grow suddenly’. This suburb took a long time to establish itself however when it did it grew and developed in a short period of time and became known as il-Ħamrun as it is known today.
Today it is very different from 60 or 70 years ago with the advancements it went through in a short period of time and it now almost competes with the Capital City il-Belt Valletta (Città Umilissima). One finds shops of all sorts and this makes life comfortable for the people who needn’t go far out for their everyday needs.
