A feast for a Saint: St. Paul’s Shipwreck Day in Malta

Immortalised in the Act of the Apostles, the shipwreck of St. Paul in Malta, almost 2.000 years ago, is still celebrated by the Maltese. Through parades and festivities, they make sure that their patron saint is not forgotten, and so history becomes alive. Only 3 days before carnival, this is a great time to visit this fascinating island.
