Location; Xaghra Village
Offering a wealth of rich historical heritage, Xagħra is a particularly picturesque village encircled by the lush valleys of Ramla, Ta' l-Għejjun and Marsalforn and by three beautiful bays - Rambla (considered Gozo’s best beach), Għajn Barrani and Marsalforn.
History shows Xaghra has been settled since the earliest times and possesses one of the most extraordinary structures on the Island - the Ġgantija temple complex. Consisting of two Neolithic stone temples dating back to 3600BC, these gargantuan items are amongst the oldest freestanding stone buildings in the world and as such hold UNESCO World Heritage status.
Close-by is the restored eighteenth-century windmill, Ta’ Kola, with its original mechanisms and miller’s living quarters on view while for something quite different, the Pomskizillious Museum of Toys displays a range of antique toys and a waxwork of artist and rhyme-writer, Edward Lear.
Perhaps a more surprising village attraction is its caves! Hidden beneath two private houses in Xaghra’s residential streets you find Xerri’s Grotto and Ninu’s Cave; while just outside the town, overlooking Ramla Bay, is the legendary ‘Calpyso’s Cave’- supposedly home of mythical nymph, Calypso, from Homer's Odyssey.
Xaghra’s first parish church, dedicated to St Anthony Abbott, was originally a medieval chapel that later gained parish status in 1688 and still stands today. The parish, however, is now served by the much larger Basilica within the central square (dedicated to the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary). The 8th September marks the annual feast day and, unusually, serves a dual purpose: not only does it honour the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, but the date also marks "Il-Festa tal-Vittorja" (The Victory Feast) in memory of the Maltese victory under the Knights of St. John over the Ottoman Turks in the Great Siege of 1565.
There is a great selection of cafes, bars and restaurants and a buzzing atmosphere in Xaghra Village Square, 2.5 km away from property.
Nearest supermarket is 2.5km and nearest beach 5km.
There is a bus stop literally 100 meters away from property. Catch bus No. 307 to Victoria and neighbouring villages.
