The Feast of St. Peter and St. Paul is celebrated in the town of Nadur in Gozo. It is also a Public Holiday.
This feast marks an important event in the calendar of Maltese popular customs and traditions. It is a country harvest and folk festival as well as a religious holiday. It dates back even further than the arrival of the Knights of St John in 1530. The festival is named L-Imnarja, a corruption of the Italian ‘Luminara’ and means festival of light. It is named after the bonfires that used to light up the festivities in the towns of Mdina and Rabat.
