Urban Conservation Area in Mgarr
Mġarr (or L-Imġarr), formerly known as Mgiarro, is a small town northwest of the mainland of Malta. Mgarr is a typical rural village situated in an isolated region, southwest of Mosta. It is surrounded with rich farmland and vineyards. Many of its inhabitants are farmers or are engaged in some sort of agricultural activity. Mġarr has two important prehistoric sites: Ta' Ħagrat, which is still in a good state of preservation, stands in a field near the village centre; Ta' Skorba, excavated in 1963, lies just outside the village. Mġarr is a favourite stopping place for people strolling in its countryside and for those travelling in cars to the nearby beaches.
