Be part of the Easter Celebrations in Malta

Experience the unique Easter Festivities of Malta

Malta Easter Celebrations

Join the thousands of onlookers that line the roads from the front of the church all the way along the passage of the pageant. The band players lead the way, progressing inch by inch, setting the mood of gloom with their music. Boys and men, dressed in the attire of shepherds, peasants, and Roman soldiers follow holding various reminders of the life and death of Jesus. Banners in Latin give messages to the devout Christian. And, one by one several large adorned statues pass by the stationary crowd.
