Bahrija country walk
Take a walk around Bahrija and enjoy the fresh countryside air
Bahrija country walk starts at the west side of Rabat, at the Nigret roundabout towards Fiddien, and is a long and beautiful walk that will take you through tranquil countryside, valleys surrounded by hills as well along breath-taking costal cliffs with views over the small natural reserve islet of Filfla. You will discover small farmhouses build in the cliff, old Roman excavations and maquis and pass through Bahrija - Bahrija Valley – Mtahleb – Tal-Vigarju Cliffs – Fiddien Valley – Rabat.
After you leave the small village of Bahrija you will start your country walk towards Migra Ferha and walk further on to costal cliffs with amazing views. It is at this point that you can spot Filfla. As you continue walking, you pass by the remains of the Bronze Age village and several historical sites of interest. You will also spot the small and pretty Mtahleb church, built during the mid-17th century on the side of the cliff edge overlooking the ecologically protected Mtahleb Valley. As you keep walking you will arrive to Fiddien Valley to the northwest of Rabat and from there continue to the end of the walk in Rabat. Once you are back in Rabat you have several facilities such as restaurants, phone booths, health clinics and public transport.
The Bahrija country walk will take more or less 5 hours to complete and is 13 km long.
