This is Where Popeye the Sailor Found the Best Spinach

Like the real comic life of the spinach hero

The village of colorful houses
Welcome to a pictorial place, a secluded haven of cute wooden houses, where spinach grows really fast and boats are anchored safely. Sweethaven village is located on Malta, in the Mediterranean Sea, and was built as a construction for the movie Popeye the Sailor, filmed there in the 1980s.

Paramount Pictures and Disney set the village of colorful houses to resemble the scenes from the popular comic by E.C. Segar. All houses on the film setting were made to look like the real comic life of the spinach hero and his friends Olive Oyl, Bluto, Swee’Pea and Wimpy.

At the end of the shooting, the set was left as a gift to the locals, to serve as a film museum. It is now a major Maltese tourist attraction specialized for family entertainment.

Everyone now calls it just – Popeye Village, in the honor of its famous steel-muscled sailor inhabitant.
