What to do in Malta at Easter time

Will you be enjoying the Easter holidays in Malta this year? If so, experience the unique Easter Festivities in Malta by visiting one of the renowned processions.

On Good Friday several localities around Malta and Gozo commemorate the Passion of Christ with a solemn procession of statues carried by bearers. Participants are dressed up as biblical characters or bear crosses and drag chains tied to their feet as a sign of penance or piety.

On Easter Sunday Maltese people celebrate the resurrection of Christ. The statue of the Risen Christ is carried in the streets of several towns and villages.
