As the name suggests, Msida was previously an old fishing village. It became popular with local people after a leading German Knight of the Order of St John decided to reside in this town in the late 18th century. He also built the famous Ghajn tal-Hassielin that provided a source of water for the villagers. The vaulted building still stands and is used today by fishermen to house their boats and nets.
