Did you know?Some lesser-known facts on Gozo:
Gozo is home to the oldest free-standing stone structures in the world, the temple of Ggantija in Xaghra, predating Stonehenge by an estimated 1,000 years.
The entire island is only 7 kilometres by 14 long!
With more than 300 days of sunshine a year, even during the balmy months of winter and autumn, frost is practically unknown.
Gozitan’s use a unique method handed down by their forefathers to produce olive oil using cold water, which allows them to collect the purest (and tastiest) olive oil. In fact it’s so good, locals believe that’s why they were invaded by the Romans so many years ago!
