Phew, this is still a building site. You are walking and jumping over wires etc. Very dusty too. The Mdina Glass shop/ factory is open and they have beautiful glass items. There is a jewellery shop, pottery place and some other 2 shops that were...More

This place was highly recommended and so we booked a trip specifically that included it. A total disappointment. It’s just a construction site and the 4 stores that were there looked neglected and everything we touched was full of dirt. What a waste. Maybe when...More

Don't bother going. I would wait until all the building work has been finished. At present there is very little to see apart from a few very dusty shops.

If you love hunting out local quality crafts this is a must stop. Glass, ceramics and silver jewellery dominate but there are other local treasures and souviniers too. I could easily spend a morning browsing.

This has the potential to be a great craft village, but it's about a year away id say. The development is part funded by the EU, and looks to be a really high quality, but as a result, in October 2018, only about 5 places...More

The craft village has no car park, there are no facilities for the disabled. The paths are too dangerous to walk along. There are only three businesses open. There is construction taking place and there is cement dust and dust from the roads coating everything...More

I was really looking forward to visiting the craft village, it’s always great to take back home something which is locally made and is a reminder of our holiday. Unfortunately this place is not the place for that! What a complete waste of time. There...More

Why did they not close this place until after the building work was completed I will never know. We have visited many times over the years but we couldn't even get near this time. It's dangerous due to heavy machinery and inaccessible by car, maybe...More
