Bubaqra is a hamlet with its own administrative division in Żurrieq, Malta. It is a small rural village situated between Nigret and Ħal Far. Has a population of 2,000 people. Even though it is one of the oldest areas in this village, many new buildings are being constructed and this area is searched most by newlyweds who come to live in this quiet, airy area. At the centre of this zone, a small church is situated, dedicated to the Assumption of Mary. A few metres away, there is also the churchyard of this village dedicated to St. Leon.
In 1579, the Bubaqra Tower was built on the outskirts of this zone. It was built as a country retreat by a member of the Order of St. John, and was used for defensive purposes at some points. The tower is currently privately owned, and it has been restored.
