One of the many religious holidays of Malta and a holiday in the whole country. Are we complaining? Of course, not. I like the holidays very much.
Almost every month is a feast for 1 day.
These holidays start every year with the 10th of February. As older people go to church and celebrate by praying, young people go to Paceville on holiday and celebrate by drinking and dancing.

I celebrate every holiday as if it were my own holiday since I moved to Malta. During these holidays I was usually at home. I never wondered until the last year of the feast day. I realized there was no information about the holidays and I searched for Saint Paula.
Saul of Tarsus is the first name of Saint Paul. Tarsus. Yes it is that Mersin is Tarsus. He was born Jewish in Tarsus in Turkey. He has made big overalls for Christians Before choosing Christianity. Afterwards he founded the churches of Pavlik himself and became a Christian.

In the new testament, the fact that St. Paul landed in Malta had a very important. Therefore he was considered Malta’s spiritual father. In the capital Valletta there is a church dedicated to him called “Collegiate Parish Church of St Paul’s Shipwreck” (Maltese Il-Knisja Kolleġġjata in’ San Pawl) And the past of this church dates back to 1570!
Every year on the 10th February the Valletta streets are adorned And in 1657 the streets were visited by the Malcolm of St. Paul made by the Melchiorre Cafà.
