St Julian’s

The city of St Julian’s owned its status as one of the most dynamic cities on the Maltese Island. The city offers excellent leisure activities, vibrant nightlife, exquisite shopping opportunities and state of the art dining options. The renovated Paceville district, a former military haunt in the 1930s, is now the hub of Saint Julian’s nightlife with an array of restaurants, bars, and clubs.

Saint Julian’s is a popular holiday spot on the coast of Malta. The small town successfully blends its fishing village charm with its tourist centre. Latin architecture, such as Spinola Palace, built in 1688, and the Old Parish Church are popular historical sites. Divers will enjoy exploring shipwrecks via the Divewise Centre.

St Julian’s has not only established itself locally, but has also gained an international recognition after the city’s famous Portomaso Marina won ‘The Best Marina Development in Europe Award’.

History and Culture

St. Julian’s has a population of around 8,000 people, and its name comes from the patron saint of the town, Saint Julian. Before 1800, St. Julian’s was just a small fishing village surrounding Balluta and Spinola bays, with very few buildings except for the Spinola Palace, the old parish church, a few fishermen’s huts and a few farm houses in the countryside. Today, it is one of the most dynamic cities on the island, with wild nightlife, exceptional shopping opportunities, beautiful beaches, and outstanding dining options.

The city is very popular among the tourist, especially in the summer time, when many can enjoy Maltese sun, the city’s never-ending amenities and warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea. The crown jewel of summer of St Julian’s is a traditional summer festa, which is celebrated annually on the last Sunday of August.
