Gozo Area Information
Gharb, which some say is named after the Arabic word for sunset, is on Gozo's western coast, bordering by St. Lawrence and Ghasri. Gharb sits among some of Gozo's most beautiful scenery, especially at Dbiegi, the island's highest peak and a Gozitan crafts hub. Gharb is a character despite his size. The town square is a postcard image of Gozitan life.
Visit the village square's folklore museum and its exquisite stone balconies. This 1996 museum displays devices and equipment from Maltese trades and crafts in workshops. Gharb was a hamlet for many years before becoming a parish in 1679. In 1729, the baroque parish church commemorated the Visitation of Our Lady to St. Elizabeth. The real feast day is May 31, but you can experience the local festa's pomp and circumstance during July's first weekend. The Basilica of Ta' Pinu,
Malta's most famous church, located near Gharb. In 1883, a local woman heard the Virgin's voice here, making it the nation's most important Virgin Mary shrine. San Dimitri Chapel is also in Gharb. According to mythology, a mother whose son St. Demetrius had freed built the first chapel on the rock. Gharb is chiefly linked with Francis Xavier Mercieca, also known as Frenc tal-Gharb. He is known for treating others through prayer, old medicinal herbs, and unusual methods like foot massage, despite never having studied medicine. His ability to foresee the past and future made him a popular counselor and healer in Malta. Visit Gharb's birthplace, where he lived from 1892 to 1967.
