Birgu is the city famous for being an ancient maritime city. Since it has a rich history in military and maritime activities, it is not surprising that the place is crowded with Ghosts.
Just imagine, prisoners were beheaded by the Knights of St John and their heads used as cannonballs against the Turks. In fact the city still has Ghosts roaming around, in search of their missing head.
Public executions of those who confessed a crime was the norm. It is also said that the Inquisitor’s palace once even had a well of swords used as a portal towards eternal damnation. The second world war between 1940 and 1943 also caused inescapable deaths and destruction throughout the city.
Such events along with other dark periods which Birgu witnessed throughout the course of history have left their mark, and many still claim that ghosts haunt this city till today. Join us for a thrilling adventure, and learn more about Birgu’s dark past...

Birgu ghost tour
Gabriella C, 06-11-2019
The Birgu ghost tour is a must ... we really enjoyed the walk in the old city with tour guide Silvana , who not only narrated the ghost stories related to the place but also gave a simple yet interesting historical explanation to put us(maltese and foreigners) in the picture. Well done. We will definately join another tour soon

Very professional service, highly recommend
We organised a private ghost tour for our community (Whereto360) and were very satisfied. The guide was very knowledgeable and included a lot of history and interesting stories about Birgu. Communication before the activity was also good and it was easy to book and pay online, we even received a reminder on the day. Overall very professional and highly recommended
Very informative tour on the history of Birgu with a dark history twist
Very informative tour on the rich history of Birgu with a dark twist given that it is a ghost tour. Seeing Birgu by night was fantastic to say the least and when a good guide like Matthew gives a meaning, through his historical knowledge, of all the fortifications and old buildings we have seen makes the atmosphere even more magical.
Would highly recommend the tour, not to be missed if you are in Malta.
