Xaghra

Xaghra is a pleasantly old-fashioned village with narrow winding roads and lots of highlights to see. Ggantija Temples, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, dates back to about 3600 BC and it is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as 'the oldest free standing structures in the world.' In the limits of this village other prehistoric sites can be found, such as the tal-Qacca Hypogeum, the Gozo Stone Circle, Santa Verna Temple, in-Nuffara, a number of caves and more.

Ta' Kola windmill was built in 1725, and it serves as a monument to the hard working millers of past and recent times. The windmill nowadays has been converted into a folklore museum set up in the miller's rooms. The Pomskizillious Museum, has a large private collection of toys from the nineteenth and twentieth century owned by Edwin and Susan Lowe. Its name originated from the text of imaginary creatures and nonsense verses of Edward Lear, who visited Gozo in 1866.

Ninu's Cave and Xerri's Grotto, which were discovered under a private house not too far from the village square provide visitors with an amazing sight of stalactites and stalagmites. Calypso’s cave offers magnificent views of Ramla bay. The Odyssey, an ancient Greek poem, describes how Ulysses was bewitched by a goddess named Calypso who lived in this cave, keeping him on her beautiful island for seven years. The charm of this village will incline you to do the same!
