1442 MALTA - Popeye Village
Also known as Sweethaven Village, Popeye Village is a group of rustic and ramshackle wooden buildings located at Anchor Bay, in the north-west corner of the island of Malta, two miles from the village of Mellieħa. It was built as a film set for the production of the 1980 live-action musical feature film Popeye, produced by Paramount Pictures and Walt Disney Productions and starring Robin Williams. Today it is open to the public as an open-air museum and family entertainment complex. Some of the houses in Popeye Village have been equipped with various items related to the filming, including props used in the film's production.
