Qala has its name derived from both Arabic and Maltese words for sheltered inlet, in fact Qala is renowned with locals for its sheltered bay named Hondoq ir-Rummien. This bay is situated on the coast with rock-cut saltpans, and is a perfect snorkelling locations especially due to its many caves. A chapel known as Il-Madonna tal-Blat (Saint Mary of the Rocks) can be spotted on the rocky coastline, facing Comino.

Qala is home of the best preserved windmill on the island, and prehistoric remains. The ruins found in this location include a solitary menhir, pottery shards and, Punic and Roman remains. In addition, fourteen shelters from the second world war can be found throughout Qala.

Even though there are signs of early life in this locality, it was only in 1972 that Qala became a Parish. The church, dedicated to Saint Joseph, was built in 1889 and was consecrated in 1904. The village feast is celebrated on the first Sunday of August. Another main event in Qala is the yearly traditional folk festival which is the largest of the kind on the Maltese islands.
