What is Natalis Notabilis?

Christmas in Malta is probably the most wonderful time of the year. During this magical month, the winding streets of historical Rabat are completely transformed into a delightful, winter wonderland.

With a myriad of fascinating stalls under twinkling Christmas lights, as you wonder around you can choose from a great selection of handmade arts and crafts and even pick up a few extra stocking fillers along the way. There are also lots of opportunities to pick up some traditional items such as silver filigree, handmade lace, or local honey. After building up an appetite browsing the items on offer, you can satiate yourself with a mouth-watering selection of Christmassy-themed gastronomical delights such as hog roast, and bratwurst, and wash it all down with a steaming mug of mulled wine, or hot chocolate for the children!

Keep your eye out for the beautiful crib and nativity displays too - a wonderful Maltese tradition - and be sure to take your camera to snap some great images of the gorgeous decorations that line the streets.

The Area

As you amble around the streets of Rabat, you will notice the sense of history that exists there. With its neighbouring Mdina, just around the corner, you can always wonder over to the Silent City and get lost in its winding streets, or even take in the view of the island from its dramatic bastions.

Rabat itself, is partly comprised of the old Roman town of Melite, and it is also home to the famous catacombs of St Paul and St Agatha. Its streets are full of beautiful churches and architectural wonders and for these reasons alone, it is most definitely worth a visit. For the perfect day out explore the historical wonders of Mdina and then as the sun starts to set, make your way over to Rabat and soak up the festive cheer with Natalis Notabilis.

Natalis Notabilis is renowned across the country for its incredibly festive atmosphere and for the way it brings together people of every age, in one place to celebrate all things Christmassy.
