Full description
Easter in Malta is very popular due to the Christian dominance of the island. Families unite for lunch and give out Easter presents. In the morning processions with the statue of Risen Jesus are held in various localities including Zejtun. Here you can enjoy the procession starting at 10:00.

Later on you will visit the parish church dedicated to St. Catherine. You will then go to the local bocci club where you will taste the famous figolli biscuits filled with almonds and then coated with icing sugar and decorated with colors.
