A Journey Back in Time

The saying “old as the hills” was surely coined in reference to the island of Gozo, the second largest island in the Maltese archipelago. The hills in question in the small port town of Xlendi are actually enormous rock cliffs that contain everything from caves to tombs to an underground emergency mill.

And just over these hills (but not so far away) lie some of Gozo’s most fascinating attractions. On a hilltop near Xaghra sit the UNESCO World Heritage Site Ggantija temples. The oldest freestanding structures on earth, these temples make Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids look positively teenaged. Enjoy contemplating these massive structures for an experience that’s both humbling and atmospheric.

Head downhill—all the way to the edge of Dwerja Bay—to see one of Gozo’s other main attractions—The Azue Window. Game of Thrones fans might recognize this stunning natural stone arch that stands nearly 75-feet tall, and is a hotspot for diving and snorkeling on the island.

In Gozo, heading for the hills has never sounded better. And we can assure you, these hills are worth far more than just a few beans.
