Malta’s most magical festival glows by candlelight

Thousands of people headed to Vittoriosa on Saturday night for one of the most magical nights in Malta’s events calendar.

The historic city looked stunning as more than 32,000 candles lit up the streets for the annual Birgu By Candlelight extravaganza.

Residents decorated their homes and the narrow streets, creating a magical and romantic atmosphere.

Birgu Fest celebrates the rich history and stunning architecture of Vittoriosa.

As well as Birgu by Candlelight, the festival programme also included exhibitions, historic re-enactments and cheaper entrance fees to museums.

Whether you missed it or want to relive it, here are some gorgeous shots taken by Bay fans Tony Degiorgio, Joseph Zarb, Kelcy Joy Cacap, Joyce Mahsa and Pati that capture the moment.
