This is the church that you can see from all over the place because of the enourmous dome. It is an incredible church to visit with the highlight being a trip up onto the roof (€3) where you get an amazing panoramic view of Gozo....More

Well worth the visit to the Church. I recommend reading about the Rotunda in advance and then making the visit. Definitely visit the museum and take the elevator to the top. Gorgeous views from the interior and the exterior!

Incredible to think this amazing church was built over a 20 year period through the efforts of its parishioners. Very bright inside like Ta' Pinu. The museum of sculpture from the old church is very interesting. Don't miss the lift to the exterior walkway around...More

The church of Xewkija dominates the Gozitan skyline with Cittadella. You can't definitely miss it. Inside you can take a lift (3e per person) and climb on the roof of the church where you can enjoy wonderful views of Gozo and Malta. Recommended.
