22may18-- Who wants to be a millionaire? With little effort, solar power collection from windshield/windscreen reflectors could be used to actually cool the vehicle not just reflect the sun's rays. Do it. Cut me in for a few bucks a week, please. EnJoy EnJoy
Daves. I keep meaning to have a look around this area and the various gardens,but keep missing them.
Argotti Gardens (The Botanical Gardens), just down the road from Saint Publius church was re opened a couple of weeks ago after a major upgrade to paving and infrastructure. Still the same quality and quantity of plants. I visited today, it is well worth a visit. The lower gardens are still closed for restoration.
Saint Publius Square which includes the Granaries, also known as 'il-Fosos'. The setup and the fireworks display can be seen on the other webcam... Floriana Granaries - il-Fosos live cam.
Thanks again, ganni. Your comments are always informative and the best. Allow me to expand a little. The 12th Mechanised Ground Fireworks Festival (locally known as “Nar tal-Art”), will be held in Saint Publius Square on Saturday, 14th April 2018, on the eve of the feast of Saint Publius – Floriana’s Patron Saint. Ground fireworks are a unique Maltese pyrotechnic tradition, and an extremely important part of the outdoor festa celebrations in Malta & Gozo. Each fireworks factory does its very best to improve on previous structures and invent new mechanisms. The set-up of the huge pyrotechnics displays will start on Friday 13th April at 10.00am. The fireworks display will start at 10.15pm. Saturday evening. Searching for “Nar tal-Art” many images can be found. EnJoy EnJoy
