Gharb

One of the oldest and prettiest villages on the island is home to the attractive parish church of the Visitation. The church sits alongside the diminutive police station and folklore museum which is packed with objects relating to crafts and day to day Gozitan life. With its history of craft workers it is no surprise that on the outskirts of Gharb you will find the Ta Dbiegi Craft Village where traditional glass blowing, pottery making and iron working can be observed. Remember your purse as many interesting souvenirs can be purchased here. The most popular shrine on Gozo lies within the parameters of Gharb. Ta Pinu is an architectural masterpiece and is the most important pilgrimage site with a vast and remarkable collection of ex-voto offerings. Numerous pilgrims visit the sanctuary all year round, perhaps the most famous being Pope John Paul II who held mass there in 1990.
