POPEYE VILLAGE ~ MALTA

POPEYE VILLAGE, MALTA

'Popeye Village Malta', the Film Set of the 1980 Musical Production “Popeye”, also known as 'Popeye Village' today is one of Malta's major tourist attractions. The film set was constructed in Anchor Bay during the last 7 months of 1979.

To construct this authentic wooden village, tree trunk logs were trailered overland from Holland, and wood shingles, used in the construction of the roof tops, were imported all the way from Canada. A 165 international construction crew consumed eight tons of nails and two thousand gallons of paint to finish off this massive Set.

Seeing this village was on my list of places to see in Malta.  I didn't have time to tour it up close but did have the driver carry me by the harbor so I could get a few photos.  

If you visit Malta, make sure this village is on your list of things to see.  If your time is short, like mine was, you can pull off the highway across the bay.  If you would like to visit, you can purchase tickets online at the website listed below.
