What makes Cottonera so special for you?
When deciding on where I wanted to live, I looked for a place which is rich in history, has character and vibrance and a sense of community - all of which the Three Cities ticked off nicely. Since I have been based in Cospicua, I can say I’m totally in love with the neighborhood and its people. It’s also very exciting to see more and more people, especially young creatives and artists, moving to the area. As Gerard James Borg would put it, I’m happy to be a Bormla Babe.
