IPTC INFO
CaptionGozo has been inhabitated since the 5th millennium BC as witnessed by the megalithic structures at Ġgantija. The first Neolithic settlers probably crossed over from Sicily. Another interesting neolithic structure is the Xagħra Stone Circle. In July 1551 Ottomans and Barbary pirates conquered Gozo and enslaved all 5 000 or 6 000 inhabitants bringing them to Tarhuna Wa Msalata in Libya. Their departure port in Gozo was Mġarr ix-Xini. The history of Gozo is strongly coupled with the history of Malta since Gozo has been governed by Malta within recent history with the exception of a short period of autonomy between October 28 1798 and September 5 1800.
HeadlineThe charm of Gozo is apparent the moment you arrive there. Greener more rural and smaller than Malta life on Gozo moves at a leisurely pace. The rhythms dictated by the seasons fishing and agriculture.
