Spritz and BBQ Bites for Santa Marija
Whether you have the day off, or the whole week, Palazzo De Piro is the place to be on the eve of one of Malta’s most favoured feast, Santa Marija. Enjoy a drink and BBQ bites on the Bastion terrace of the picturesque Sala Panoramica whilst overlooking the magical fireworks displays being held in six different locations around the island.
Feast in a mouth-watering selection of flavoursome meats served fresh off the grill and accompanied by traditional and not so traditional sides from our ‘Cold Buffet Section’. If you still have space left in your belly, finish off your feasting with a refreshing dessert delicately prepared for this delightful evening. Free flowing Wine and Spritz will be served throughout the night, and if you’re one of many who will delight in a day off, this is your chance to spoil yourself and enjoy an extra glass of your favourite wine.
Santa Marija, also known as the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady, marks the ascent into heaven by the Virgin Mary and is celebrated in seven villages all around Malta and our sister Island Gozo on the 15th of August; Ħal Għaxaq, Gudja, Ħ’Attard, Mosta, Mqabba and Qrendi in Malta, and Victoria in Gozo.
Santa Maria Open Bar & BBQ Night will be held at Palazzo De Piro in Mdina on the 14th of August at 7:30pm for the price of € 47.00 per person.
