Why Live in Zejtun?
The Żejtun Roman villa is a very recent discovery and thought to be one of three Roman villas found in Malta, both residential and industrial in their use. The Roman villa is thought to have housed olive presses for the production of oil. Further ruins beneath the villa suggest a previous Punic establishment used for wine production. Even though Żejtun is not a shopping centre, a weekly open market is held every Wednesday morning. Various amenities, be it shopping, religious services or public schools are available too. Bars, local bandclubs and sports clubs are popular hangouts. Żejtun is also very close to seaside localities for swimming, restaurants and other leisure activities."
