‘Hortis undique saepta’ – surrounded by gardens- is the motto of this picturesque village, situated in the middle of Malta.

Ħal Balzan is well-known for its typical beautiful gardens and orchards, laden with the fresh scents of citrus fruits.

In spite of the decreasing number of such gardens, Ħal Balzan still boasts of an abundance of traditional town houses with back gardens full of lemon, orange and tangerine trees.

Balzan is a municipality in the Central Region of Malta, one of the so-called three villages, together with Attard and Lija. The village originally consisted of a group of small dwellings and farms but eventually grew, becoming a parish in the 17th century. As at 2019 the town had 4768 inhabitants.
