Dwejra, with its dramatic coastal formations and sea spilling over the rocks, is a magical attraction. Here you can swim in the spectacular deep sea of the bay, in the calm shallows of the inland sea or in the foamy waters around the Blue Hole.
- San Lawrenz
San Lawrenz is a charming traditional village in western Gozo just inland of the unusual geological attractions of Dwejra Bay and next to the Ta’ Dbiegi Craft Village. San Lawrenz is built on a plain surrounded by three hills, Ta' Għammar, Ta' Gelmus and Ta' Dbiegi which rises 195 metres above sea level to Gozo's highest point.
- Ta' Pinu
A monumental shrine to Our Lady of Ta' Pinu was built between 1920 and 1931. It is an architectural masterpiece, especially inside with its superb sculptures and craftsmanship in Maltese stone. The sanctuary was constructed in front of the original chapel. The chapel remains in tact behind the altar and still contains the painting of the Assumption to Heaven of Our Lady.
Il-Fontana (Italian for spring), took its name from a bountiful spring ("il-Għajn il-Kbira" - the big spring). Now a suburb of ir-Rabat (Victoria), il-Fontana was first settled because of the availability of fresh water and in the sixteenth century, arched shelters were built over each spring for the convenience of the people using them. These are still standing and inside you will find traditional stone water tubs in which local folk did their daily washing.
