Urban Conservation Area in Hamrun
Ħamrun (or Il-Ħamrun) is a town in the Inner Harbour Region of Malta. Ħamrun is a suburb which is situated some 2.25 km away from Malta’s capital, Valletta. “Propera Augesco” (which means ‘ I grow rapidly’) is its motto - this explains how Ħamrun grew along the years to become one of the largest towns in Malta. Today, Ħamrun besides being in the whole a residential town, is also one of the biggest commercial centres in Malta. Few are the places in Malta which can be proud to have a wide and long road like that of Ħamrun. Besides, Ħamrun is the biggest educative centre in Malta, as it is the town with the major number of schools in it. Ħamrun is exceptionally renowned for the activity one finds in it. All day long Ħamrun is full of people walking, shopping and enjoying themselves. This makes Ħamrun a living and energetic town, and it is in those aspects that the beauty of Ħamrun emerges.
