Għargħur is perched on a steep peninsula on the Great Fault which runs east-west across Malta. It is another village on the Victoria Lines, the 19th century British fortifications that run along the top of the ridge. Għargħur was a small farming community, and although it lies near the modern urban areas of central Malta, it has managed to retain a rural tranquillity. The village core itself is charming and picturesque with its ancient farmhouses, a windmill and the typical parish church. The church, designed by Maltese architect Tumas Dingli, houses several valuable artworks including a 13th century titular painting and a tryptich dated 1587. A short walk from the village centre leads to some beautiful countryside with superb views. Near the village, lies Fort Madliena, one of four forts built along the Victoria Lines.
