Swieqi is a tranquil residential area within walking distance of St. Julians and Malta's nightlife and entertainment centre of Paceville. Swieqi means water channels, a mere reminder of the recent past, as the village grew exponentially in the last 20 years. Gradually estates took over farmland and in the 90's the high demand for property in the area saw the village developing into the town we see today.
Swieqi assimilates Tal-Ibrag, il-Madliena and part of St Andrews, all localities that originally formed part of Gharghur. Neighboring Tal-Ibrag is a newly developed hamlet which is very much like Swieqi
Swieqi's tanquil environment and close priximity to St. Julians, combined with its beautiful Terraced Houses and small Apartment blocks have made it popular with the upper-middle population. Property in Swieqi enjoy high appreciation and excellent rental returns thanks to the IT facilities and English language schools nearby.
