Msida is located close to the capital Valletta on the northeast coast of Malta. Its name is derived from Arabic and implies a fishing village. Nowadays this town is mostly known for the GF Abela Junior College, the University of Malta, and the Mater Dei General Hospital. Associated with its name, nowadays Msida operates a very busy Yacht Marina in Marsamxett Harbour Bay.

The charming Villambrosa District is evidence of the winding roads and pathways leading off Valley Road which characterised Msida in the past. Nowadays this town has been urbanized and a lot of modern buildings can be found. The centre of this town and adjacent areas tend to have water from higher ground naturally gather at the bottom of the Valley in this area, which causes a flooding problem when heavy rain hits the island.

Msida’s patron saint is Saint Joseph while the protector is The Holy Conception. The town’s feast is in honour of St Joseph is celebrated for a full week and a half in July. Except for the exceptionally long celebrations this feast is also popular due to the traditional game known as il-Gostra whereby local men compete against each other in trying to reach a flag at the end of a slippery pole and generally several men fall into the sea.
