Gozo has much to offer in the way of attractions. In Gozo stands the oldest and one of the most imposing megalithic temples of the islands, known as Ggantija. Following in the footsteps of the temples, Gozitan people has built several churches which became the centre of village life and a landmark of the village. The biggest one is the Xewkija parish church dedicated to St. John the Baptist. This church whose gigantic dome is one of the biggest in the world is less than 5 minutes walking distance far from Ta' Maria farmhouse.

Characterised by the Rotunda church, Xewkija offers stunning landscapes including Mgarr ix-Xini Valley and bay and the services of supermarkets, restaurants, banking facilities, butchers, pharmacy, diving centres and everything you may need for your holiday.
