Il-Kalkara is a small picturesque village in Malta, with a population of 2,999 as of March 2011. The name is derived from the Latin word for lime (Calce), and it is believed that there was a lime kiln present there since Roman times.
Kalkara forms part of the inner harbour area and occupies the area around Kalkara Creek. The town has its own Local Council and is bordered by the city of Birgu, and the towns of Haz-Zabbar and ix-Xghajra.
The village of Kalkara developed as a small fishing community around the sheltered inlet of Kalkara Creek. Some historians believe that the land that today is known as Kalkara, was one of the first to be inhabited by the initial dwellers of Malta that came from nearby island of Sicily.
