The town is set on top of a hill of fertile land just across from Mdina where agriculture was the main source of income for the villagers. In the late 19th century, the British built a Military Base and accommodation for personnel serving in Malta. They also built a Military Hospital, barracks, a cemetery and a clock tower which still stands today. The hospital was later turned in to a state secondary school, named after Sir Temi Zammit.
