Many many thanks to use your home. The insights you gave us into this beautiful Calypso island was most meaningful. I have learnt more on this adventure than on any other trip to Gozo.
Being able to put the pieces of the puzzle together and make the connections with Gharb and Ta' Pinu is fantastic. We both send you heartfull thanks for the birthday celebrations and it is thrilling to have taken part in the feast. Once again, many, many thanks.

Gozo is the second largest island of Malta in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. Enriched with over 7000 years of history and graciously blessed with envious natural beauty, breathtaking views, this lovely unspoiled island is an oasis of tranquility, offers a warmth of hospitality and a unique peaceful ambience.
Better known as the Island of the Three Hills because flat-topped hills dot the landscape, Gozo possesses a wonderful coast with rugged cliffs penetrated by steep valleys and gorgeous bays like Ramla Bay. The countryside is greener, more spectacular, and has a distinct character. More rustic and quieter than Malta, it is 14 kilometers long and 7 kilometers at its widest point. The many bays and rocky coves in Gozo like the Azure Window in Dwejra, plus the aquamarine crystal clear water are ideal for water-sports such as snorkelling and diving. No wonder the island is considered the diving mecca in all the Mediterranean!
Certainly, Gozo is not an island for those seeking bright lights and the hustle and bustle of other Mediterranean resorts. Here the pace of life is slow and relaxed. Gozo is the Mediterranean as once was, a unique romantic island, rooted in history and prehistory. A visit to Ggantija Temples in Xaghra, considered as the oldest building structures on earth, built eight centuries before the pyramids in Egypt is a must!
Gozo's climate is definitely outstanding. The island where the sun always shines. Lovely. So warm but at the same time at night gently kissed by the cool breezes from the Mediterranean Sea. Sunshine averages 6.46 hours in winter and 11 hours in summer. There is no fog, snow, or frost. The hottest period is mid-July to mid-September.
Today, Gozo still evokes the magic of the myth and casts its spell over today's twenty first century visitors. The sleepy pace and rustic charm of the island encourage relaxation from the moment you first set foot on the harbour-side at Mgarr. In Gozo you too can discover the charms and peaceful country surroundings while living in the traditional past.
Ghajnsielem, just above Mgarr Harbour is the gateway to the island of Gozo. Its peacefulness is historically engraved in its own name: 'Ghajn' (spring of) and 'Is-Sliem' (peace) – a spring of peace.
Our unique location facing the Mediterranean Sea offers a quiet place to get away from it all. At the same time, all amenities are close by. Seafront & award winning restaurants, supermarket, beaches, diving, boat trips to Comino & Blue Lagoon, Gozo ferry, bus stops to capital Victoria & Citadel & car hire are less than 15 minutes on foot. Ghajnsielem is blessed with fantastic open spaces, five beautiful churches, the Apparition Monument, Fort Chambrai, beach and local craftsmanship workshops. Ghajnsielem is also home of Gozo's favourite pasta dishes, ravioli, local pizza known as ftira, fresh fish, traditional bread and of course mouthwatering pastries - a ritual souvenir for all our special guests!

Classical Opera in October 2014 in Gozo theatres - Astra Theatre and Aurora Theatre.
Booking of opera tickets on reservation.
Teatru Astra proudly announces Giuseppe Verdi's immortal Nabucco as the highlight of Festival Mediterranea 2014. This production will see Nabucco being staged at the Astra after an absence of twenty years. It was last performed in our theatre in 1994, a production that was a resounding success with both critics and public. Nabucco is a tour-de-force and one of Verdi's most popular operas and this not least because of the leading role that the choir has in this opera. In fact, the choir in Nabucco is considered one of the main protagonists, alongside that of Nabucco and Abigaille. Nabucco will be performed on Thursday 23rd and Saturday 25th October 2014. The Malta Philharmonic Orchestra will be under the direction of Teatru Astra and Mediterranea's Music and Artistic Director, Prof. Joseph Vella, while the regia will once again be entrusted to Enrico Stinchelli.
Festival Mediterranea 2014 in October / November 2014
