The Island of Gozo region
While flying over Gozo and watching through the place window, one can already notice the difference between Gozo and Malta. From the air, Gozo looks greener and less inhabited compared to the main island. From the top sun deck of the ferry one can already get a first taste of Gozo while admiring the colourful Mgarr harbour and breathe Gozo’s fresh air. Gozo gives its visitors a different experience compared to what the main island Malta has to offer. The island is all about relaxation and perfect for lazier travellers. It has a unique vibe and essence of beauty that is difficult to put into words.
According to legend, Gozo was Homer’s isle of Ogygia, where the nymph Calypso held the Greek hero Odysseus as her companion for seven years.
Around 31 000 people inhabit the island, which amounts to one-twelfth of the overall population of Malta and equivalent to the population of the town of Birkirkara in Malta. When compared to the overall area of the Maltese islands, Gozo covers approximately one-third of that area. This means that the island of Gozo is not overpopulated, and therefore greener and quite more peaceful. The underlying layers in Gozo are more clayey than Malta’s which makes Gozo greener. Life in Gozo is soft-paced and this is easily captured in village life.
Gozo is home to some of the oldest religious structures in the world including the fascinating Ggantija temples, which is featured in the World's Guinness of records as the oldest freestanding structure in the world. Gozo being a very religious island is full of churches and one is expected to find not only the main parish church in each village but also other small churches all round. The most impressive of these is probably the church of Xewkija, a major landmark which boasts one of the world’s largest domes. The capital Victoria, hosts two of the islands' most magnificent churches, the Cathedral and the Basilica of St George. Another church which is spiritually very important to the Gozitan community is the Basilica of Ta’ Pinu, located in open countryside.
In Gozo one will also find the popular Dwejra Azure Window, and the nearby Inland Sea. Two popular tourist resorts are those of Marsalforn and Xlendi bay.
Another favourite amongst nature lovers is Ta’ ?en? and its imposing cliffs. The sea around the island is warm and clear, and there are dive sites for the novice but also for the more experienced. The red golden sands of Ramla Bay are perfect for families and swimming, while the spectacular Blue Hole beneath the Azure Window is a must for diving lovers. The latter is known to be one of the best diving spots worldwide. The coastline and surrounding waters also offer opportunities for sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, and fishing.
In Victoria (or Rabat as known by the locals), one can admire the Citadel which is a historic fortified city.
Being essentially rural in character, Gozo main sources of income are from tourism, agriculture and fishing. With an abundance of fresh organic produce and traditional farming, Gozo is popular for its fresh fish, vegetables and cheese. Gozo is well served by restaurants which offer the best of the rich and varied local cuisine at reasonable prices. One will also notice a difference in the architecture of many Gozitan homes which feature stylish enclosed balconies. Gozitans like to decorate their homes both internally and externally.
Gozo's untouched beaches are ideal to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Wherever you are, you are never too far away from a beach. Walking through Gozo’s countryside or quaint village alleys is also suggested and will prove to be a relaxing experience. Boat trips around the island offer many sights and easy access to beautiful beaches. San blas is a very small but beautiful sandy beach which is only accessible by boat. From the sea, one can enjoy a very special view of the towering rugged cliffs and the many coves and caves which nature have formed over the centuries and now home to various bird species and other wildlife.
Ta' Ker?em is a village on the island of Gozo, Malta, with a population of around 1,900 people.
The village of Ta' Ker?em lies close by to the south-west of Victoria, spread between the picturesque Lunzjata Valley, the green hills of Tal-Mixta, G?ar Ilma and Ta' Dbie?i, and stretching up to the Pond of G?adira ta' San Rafflu and Xlendi cliffs.
Archaeological discoveries show that the sizeable area of Ta' Ker?em was inhabited as early as the G?ar Dalam phase (5000-4500 BC). The Roman Baths and an early Christian cemetery at G?ar Gerduf, referred to by Gozitan historian De Soldanis as Roman Catacombs, are also significant discoveries. However to date, these historic sites are not accessible to the public.
The hamlet of Santa Lu?ija, Gozo, although in itself incorporated within Ta' Ker?em, is quite distinct with its rustic church square. Santa Lu?ija is inhabited by country folk with a few old houses built around an old chapel dedicated to St. Lucy.
