    Azure Window

    by Angelinka Written May 11, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: The Azure Window is the highlight of an area called Dwejra, that looks like a moonscape: it´s an area rich in geological faults and quircks and the result is an inland sea, bowls in the land, islands stranded off the coast and tha Azure Window. The Azure Window is an arch that loops over the water to create a rectangular window at sea level, no wonder it is the most photographed feature in Gozo.

    Victoria - the capital town of Gozo

    by Angelinka Written May 12, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Victoria is the capital city of Gozo. Its older name is Rabat and many people still refer to it by that name. The town i strategically placed near the geographic centre of the Island of Gozo, with all roads leading to and away from it. The town is built on a high point and the Citadel is built on a hill that is over five hundred feet above sea level, making it the second-highest spot in Gozo.

    Xlendi Bay.

    by Maurizioago Updated Jul 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Xlendi Bay is a small tourist resort on the south-west coast of Gozo. It is located only a couple of kilometers form Victoria.

    My friend Anne (Xemx) took me to see the sea through the rocks. There is a flight of steps to get to some look out point.

    The Cliffs of Gozo

    The wonderful cliffs of Xlendi

    Favorite thing: Gozo Island is simply beautiful. Its magical cliffs are a sight to behold. When you fly in the helicopter from Luqa airport on Malta you travel down the sides of these fabulous islands. It is an experience not to be missed. It takes only about 15 minutes

    Fondest memory: The cliffs of Xlendi (Gozo)

    Ggantija Megalithic temples

    by Irine_29 Written Jan 6, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ggantila Megalithic temple

    Favorite thing: Just like in Malta, I was mostly impressed by those Megalithic temples.
    Weird pre-historic buildings (3600-3000 b.C.), survive to prove their remote function, hinting to the religious preoccupation that the early Maltese inhabitants were concerned with.

    The Maltese language

    by maartenw Written May 14, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Subtitles sure help......

    Favorite thing: While in Malta or Gozo, why not try to pick up some of their words? Well, good luck. The Maltese language is pretty awkward. It is a Semitic language (somehow related to Arab and Hebrew), they have some strange letters (H's and G's with lines and dots added) and a peculiar pronounciation. But reading signs and watching local TV is fun. Try to say 'qaghaq'......

    Automatic exchange office in Xlendi

    Fondest memory: For the ones who need to change some money, there are four banks in Victoria, APS Bank, Bank of Valletta and HSBC, in Republic Street and Lombard Bank in Ninu Cremona Street.

    All banks have an ATM service and there are other ATMs and automatic exchange in Marsalforn and Xlendi.

    Ggantija Temples history

    Fondest memory: For the tourists that don't have a guide books, but want to now more about the places they are visited, in some of them informative boards are presenting some details about the places' history and features.

    I found such boards, written in English and Maltese, in Ggantija temples and at the entrance to the Rotunda.

    Favorite thing: Visit the museum of history of the island 'Heritage of Malta'. Moving from one hall to another you'll be involved in a sort of performance. The manner of presentation of historic events is really unusual.

    by maxovna Written Sep 12, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Visit the place Xara - not far from it, in Ggantija, the Mnaidra Temples are situated. They are intered into the Guinness record book. They are considered to be the first constructions of religion on the Earth. They are 5500 years - older than the Egyptian pyramids.

    Fondest memory: On Gozo there are plenty of hills with so-called 'cut away' summits. There is a version that those summits served as take-off and landing strips for aliens.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Walk around RABAT - the capital of Gozo.

    Fondest memory: Here I was impressed by one thing: in the place called FONTANA there are some artesian wells, and they made sort of laundry of them. We were shown an old woman who probably works as laundress somewhere. Every day she comes here barefoot (in any weather) to wash the linen in the wells. She pays no attention at being photographed. You may see her at the background of the picture.
