Well worth the visit to the Church. I recommend reading about the Rotunda in advance and then making the visit. Definitely visit the museum and take the elevator to the top. Gorgeous views from the interior and the exterior!

The church of Xewkija dominates the Gozitan skyline with Cittadella. You can't definitely miss it. Inside you can take a lift (3e per person) and climb on the roof of the church where you can enjoy wonderful views of Gozo and Malta. Recommended.

Situated in a lovely village with great architecture, the views from the church roof are well worth the couple of euros admittance fee. Worth a visit.

This edifice faces the town square in this village and has an amazing story of how it was constructed - a lot of volunteer labor apparently was given. Well worth a visit and it would be pretty amazing to be there for a concert with...More
