We observed a Sunday procession from a nearby Cathedral. Very interesting. Suggest to check the local listings for other Churches processions - they are almost every weekend.

Went to Balluta Square a couple of times to relax. A fair few old people and families with children, just relaxing and watching the day go by. Not much to see or do however was nice to just sit.
