OPEN MONDAY - SUNDAY from 09.00 Till 17.00Hrs (last admission at 16.30Hrs). Ta' Kola Windmill in Xaghra, Gozo, is one of the few surviving windmills on the Maltese Islands dating back to the Knights' Period. Its origins go back to 1725 during the magistracy of Grand Master Manoel de Vilhena (1722-36). Nowadays, the windmill houses one of the largest known collections of tools, some of which were manufactured by the last miller who lived inside the mill. The site offers a glimpse into the traditional rural life of the locals during the past centuries.

It's worth paying the €9 at Ggigantji temples to see both sites. This is an interesting look at the workings of an old mill and you can see both living and working parts including the mill and sails mechanism at the top.

this beautifully scaled important phase of development on an important area of island geography is well curated and beautifully laid out for your ease and understanding. Do take time to enjoy and imagine what life was like.

We stayed in Xaghra and after visiting the temples used our tickets to visit the Ta Kola Windmill/Museum. What a lovely experience, beautifully presented with plenty of information to help you imagine how the windmill operated. Very highly recommended.

Please visit this. It is very interesting, I can not tell you what you will discover because it will spoil it. Make sure you climb all of it!

Straight from the outset you can read up on the last miller, who really sounds like a fascinating chap, before learning about the whole craft in this stunningly restored windmill. May not be everyone's cup of tea but if you enjoy a bit of history...More

Nice enough place. A good job done in telling the story of the last miller to live here, which really brings the place alive. Excellent views from the top and interesting artefacts all through. We got in with a combined ticket from the megalithic temples...More

Built in 1725, this is a well documented and historic tribute to both the history of windmills on Gozo but also to the history of a particular family who lived and worked here for several centuries. Worth a visit.
