Kalkara Creek, Malta


Kalkara Creek, originally uploaded by albireo2006.

Kalkara is a small town in Malta, with a current population of 2,856 (Dec 2009). The name comes from the Latin word for lime (Calce), as there was a lime kiln present there since Roman times. Kalkara forms part of the inner harbour area and although not geographically part of Cottonera, as the three cities of Birgu, Isla and Bormla are known, it is unofficially included in this grouping due to its close proximity.
