Zejtun's Roman Villa to be preserved

The Roman Villa in Zejtun, which dates back to the first and second centuries, is to be saved thanks to a preservation programme initiated by Din l-Art Helwa and the University of Malta, with the help of the HSBC Malta Foundation.

The villa is one of four remaining residential or industrial sites in Malta that date to this period, the other three being the Roman Domus in Rabat, San Pawl Milqi and Ta’ Kaccatura in Birzebbuga.

The villa remains still contain areas of the original Roman tiles and coloured stucco.
