Gozo Area Information
Xewkija located between Ghajnsielem and Victoria. Xewkija is the Arabic and Maltese word for thistles and likely refers to a thistle-filled environment. It is hard to fathom what Xewkija looked like before. The oldest settlement in Gozo, it separated from Victoria in 1678. At the time, Xewkija could support itself thanks to its fertile feeds, two towers, and proximity to the Citadel.
This autonomy led to Xewkija's rapid development, as evidenced by the University of Malta (Gozo Section), Employment Training Corporation offices, a huge Industrial Estate, the Government Farm, the Gozo Stadium, and two important Cemeteries.Xewkija's most notable landmark is its church. The Rotunda (1695-1734) is Gozo's largest. 1738 bell tower, 1830 dome. Tal-Madonna tal-Hniena, or the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mercy, is really dedicated to St. Bartholomew and dates to 1397. Look for historic niches in Xewkija's house facades and street corners.
There are other old buildings to appreciate, such as the Knights' windmill, which shows the eight main wind directions. The tower of Santa Cecilja is from the same era. The famous Majmuna marble slab includes an Arabic inscription from 1173 marking the death of an Arab girl. Pagan symbols on its underside indicate it once belonged to a pagan temple. Megalithic Temple foundations may have been damaged during church construction.
Xewkija excavations uncovered Punic pottery and animal bones. 1951 found a 6.85-meter Roman wall near tal-Horob. The Museum of Archaeology has artifacts from various periods and a Roman Olive Mill. Mgarr ix-Xini, within Xewkija, is a prominent region of Gozo. It is a steep-sided watercourse at the mouth of a deep valley that provides protection during stormy weather and is beautiful. Wied Mgarr ix-Xini is rich in biodiversity, and here you may locate a number of mystery pans that may have been part of an Arab-era clay lavation process.
