Location description from owner

The Island of Gozo region

Gozo is further in spirit from Malta than the 8-km channel which separates the two islands would suggest. Some visitors to the comparative fast lane of Malta cannot comprehend the idea of spending more than one day in the sleepy Gozo, while Gozo's visitors, an eclectic mixture of discerning wealthy Europeans and divers on a budget, would never contemplate setting foot in Malta.
Like most peaceful islands Gozo is dimunitive - 14 km by 6.5 km at best 67 kilometres in all - and its population of 30,000 is a little more than that of Sliema and St. Julian's combined. Yet the bathing and diving are superb, and the walks are peaceful; as Edward Lear said in 1866, "Gozo's coast scenery may truly be called pomskizillous and proghibberous, being as no words can describe its magnificence'.

Xewkija

Xewkija is famous for its contemporary parish church to St John the Baptist, known simply as 'the Rotunda'. Not only does it dominate the village, it dominates the entire island. The village with its population fewer than 3,000 has an eccentrically suburban air for an agricularal community. Men on ancient lilac-colored vespas roar noisily through the medieval, twisting streets wearing soup-bowl helmets and shot guns slung across their backs; young boys goad a donkey and cart through the main square; a handful of people too old to work the fields sit beside their bamboo-slatted front doors awaiting the cool of the day, while tourists gawp at their cathedral sized church.
The village sprawls along and off the main Victoria-Mgarr road and is well signposted. On the 4th Sunday in June Xewkija celebrates its festa to St John the Baptist, patron saint of the knights of Malta.
The Rotunda church has the second highest dome, internally, in Europe (after St Peter's in Rome), is 6 m taller than St Paul's Cathedral in London.The skill of the stone masons is remarkable but the single-most impressive feature is the dome, a 45,000-ton structure set on eight columns.
If you stand at a distance, in the fields of Ta' Lambert near the heliport at sunset, the dome presents a striking silhouette as the orange light powers through it.
