Mellieha is a large village in the north-western part of Malta, the largest island of the Republic of Malta. This village of approximately 7,500 inhabitants is a popular resort town in the summer.
Like the rest of the island, Mellieha too enjoys a warm climate with ample sunshine throughout the year. In July and August, the average temperature during the day is 30°C; winters are mild.
Through the Middle Ages the area was subjected to many raids and thus remained largely uninhabited. But, towards the end of the Middle Ages, it was fortified and a church was built which attracted lots of pilgrims.
Mellieha is sheltered by a long range of hills. A large section of its population still leads a rural life with hunting and fishing being their main occupation.
