Travel Tips for Xaghra

XAGHRA - GOZO

by micajo

Ix-Xaghra (pronounced: shara) is built on a hill to the central north-east of the island of Gozo. It lies just under four kilometres from Rabat, the town of the island, and is aptly described as the village of the goddess and the Madonna. Ix - Xaghra was one of the earliest inhabited areas of Gozo. In early modern documents, the plateau is referred to as Xaghret il-Ghazzenin.. In modern times, the people first settled on the hill's highest point, aptly called tal-Qacca. This was Italianized to Caccia, the name by which ix-Xaghra is referred to in the majority of written documents until before the Second world War. This earliest sector of the village is now referred to as ta' Sant'Anton, after the dedication of a late Medieval chapel dedicated to Saint Antony the Abbot. In the spoken language, the place was commonly referred to as ix-Xaghra, literally, a rocky plateau covered with patches of red soil. The name is derived from the second sector or central area of the hill known as Xaghret il-Ghazzenin, the herdsmen's, literally lazimen's,plateau. Eventually the name Ix-Xaghra prevailed.
A third sector of the village that developed on the eastern part of the hill became known as ta' Gajdoru. It is thought that the name is derived from a chapel of the blessed V irgin Mary of Joys, Latin Gaudiorum, that once sstood in that area, but the derivation is dubious. Thisb section is now referred to as tan-Nazzarenu, after the dedication of still another chapel that was built in the area early in the twentieth century. Colloquially, it is referred to as t’hemm isfel, of the lower sector.

Ggantija Megalitic Temples

by edinka

Ggantija Temples were built 3600 BC so with its 5000 years those are ones of the oldest buildings in the world. As of today, they are mostly ruins remained from the temples at 1/3rd of the original heights. That is still a question how those huge stones (some of them are more than 1 ton) could be built together. One of the theories is that the stones were transported on triangle-shaped wedges.
The place is now part of the UNESCO World Heritage.
