M?arr (Maltese: L-Im?arr), formerly known as Mgiarro, is a small town in the Northern Region of Malta. Mgarr is a typical rural village situated in an isolated region, west of Mosta. It is surrounded with rich farmland and vineyards. Many of its 3,629[1] inhabitants are farmers or are engaged in some sort of agricultural activity. Maltese pop singers Christabelle Borg and Gaia Cauchi both hail from M?arr.

History

M?arr has two important prehistoric sites: Ta' ?a?rat, which is still in a good state of preservation, stands in a field near the village centre; Ta' Skorba, excavated in 1963, lies just outside the village.

M?arr's history is that of a farming community patronised by various of the Mdina patrican families. Mgiarro was granted by the King of Sicily to the Inguanez family, and over time they sold it to the Falsone family. Over time, land was split up and given to all descendants.

M?arr today has grown quite large, though still considered a country town with fresh clean air away from the major industrial towns of Malta.

M?arr's rustic environs embrace several rustic spots like Bin?emma, Wardija, Fomm ir-Ri?, G?ajn Tuffie?a and ?nejna Bay. San Andrea School and San Anton School are private schools located within one of M?arr's scenic valleys.
