Step Back In Time

Birgu Candlelight Company is set in the heart of Birgu in Malta. Our studio shop where we make our candles on-site can be found within the ancient walls of the Church of St. Lawrence, the first Collegiate Church of the Knights of St. John, dating back as far as the 16th Century.

Also known as Vittoriosa, Birgu is part of the area called The Three Cities comprising of Birgu, Isla and Bormla. All set behind huge defensive bastions, adjacent to the majestic Grand Harbour and Malta’s capital city Valletta.

Many events take place here each year, one of which is Birgu Fest which hosts the very special night of Birgu By Candlelight, a festival of light that illuminates the winding medieval streets with the gentle glow of thousands of candles...
