Life On Gozo
Relatively rural compared to the main island of Malta, this popular tourist destination features untouched countryside, crystal clear seas and charming villages. Gozo was first inhabited almost five thousand years ago when farmers from Sicily migrated to the island. Gozo’s long and diverse history is exemplified by the Gjan temple which is the oldest freestanding buildings in the world.
This tranquil island has retained a sense of tradition with a strong emphasis on community and family life. Coming together to share meals forms an integral part of life on Gozo. Consequently some of the most popular Maltese dishes originate on this island. Gozo's local farmers pride themselves on the flavor and freshness of their produce.
