Fgura: a commercial and residential town in Malta
Fgura is a town located in the South of Malta having an area of 1.1 km2 and is one of the most populated towns in the Maltese Islands with 12,258 inhabitants. However, before the Second World War, Fgura was a small village with only a few farmhouses. More or less 20 farmer families lived in the town at the time.
Even if Fgura seems to be a new town as it was built up in the 1960s, the town has prehistoric roots dating back to the times of the Phoenicians. Six Phoenician tombs dating back to the 4th Century B.C. were found in Fgura between 28th October and 2nd December 1948.
Nowadays, Fgura is mostly a residential town with a commercial centre on the main road that leads from Paola to Zabbar.
