Baħrija is a very small rural village in the limits of Rabat, Malta, with a population of about 3000. The name Baħrija means "moth" in Maltese. Also known in English as Baħria which the Counts Moscati had owned the fiefdom which was granted by the Grand Master of Malta.

Two churches are present in Baħrija, an old one (which is now out of use), and the newer church, built in 1984, which is dedicated to St.Martin of Tours and which is currently in use.

The main feast in Baħrija is that of St.Martin of Tours which is celebrated annually on the 11th of November. This feast is associated with an old tradition where a bag full of an assortment of nuts and fresh fruit is given to young children on the day.

Another tradition present exclusively in Baħrija is the annual fair which is held on the 1st Sunday after the feast, where an assortment of goods are given away in a number of lotteries.

Baħrija is also famous for its rabbit cooking restaurants.
