    Venue & Location

    L’Għarix Temple Retreat, on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Gozo, is built a hundred metres behind the Ġgantija temples which are recognized by UNESCO as the oldest freestanding buildings in the world. They are over 7,500 years old, older than Stonehenge and the pyramids in Egypt. L’Għarix (pronounced La Reesh) is said to have been built on a womb temple and is more than 750 years old.

    L’Għarix has its own large private cave where group sessions, workshops, and guided meditations are conducted. The cave is older than the temples themselves and is a place of natural healing energy. In ancient times the temples and caves were said to be used by the goddesses and priestesses. The art of connecting to nature with ceremonies and rituals were a part of daily life.

    One-on-one sessions are held in the private studio. Retreat guests can make use of the stunning outdoor pool area, indoor relaxation area and the cave for reflection and private meditation.

    L’Għarix is a 5-minute walk from the Xagħra (pronounced shaa-ra) town centre.

    Gozo is one of 21 islands that make up the Mediterranean archipelago. Inhabited for thousands of years, it shows evidence of historic immigration and rule by the Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Sicilians, French and British, among others. It’s known for its Neolithic Ġgantija Temple ruins, rural hiking paths, beaches and scuba-diving sites.

    Picturesque ix-Xagħra has a particularly rich historical heritage with many historical sites, several museums, beaches, hiking trails, shopping, ocean excursions and more.

    Filled with historical monuments from ancient times, Gozo has a rich healing energy. Some of the best sites to visit include:

    1. Ġgantija Megalithic Temples

    Consisting of two temples which date back to between 3600 and 3200 BC, the Ġgantija Temples are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The site is considered as one of the oldest free standing monuments in the world, preceding Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids. Some of the megaliths of the Ġgantija Temples exceed five metres in length and weigh over fifty tons.

    2. The Cittadella

    Towering high above Victoria, the capital city of Gozo, sits a majestic fortified town known locally as the Cittadella. The Cittadella rests atop a steep hill with cliff faces on many sides. The natural defenses of the area as well as the spectacular views of the whole island have made it a very popular settlement location since Neolithic times.

    3. The Wied il-Mielaħ Window

    The Wied il-Mielaħ Window is a limestone natural arch on the north-western coast of the island of Gozo in Malta. It is located at the end of the valley Wied il-Mielaħ north of the village of Għarb.

    4. Xwejni Salt Pans

    On the north coastline of Gozo, just past Qbajjar Bay west of Marsalforn, the coast is characterized by beautiful rock-cut saltpans protruding into the sea. These 350-year-old salt pans, which are roughly 3km along the shoreline, are more than just picturesque. They are part of the centuries-old Gozitan practice of Sea-Salt production that has been handed down through some families for generations.

    5. Ta’ Kola Windmill

    Ta’ Kola Windmill is one of the few surviving windmills on the Maltese Islands dating back to the Knights’ Period. Its origins go back to 1725 during the magistracy of Grand Master Manoel de Vilhena (1722-36). Nowadays, the windmill houses one of the largest known collections of tools, some of which were manufactured by the last miller who lived inside the mill. The site offers a glimpse into the traditional rural life of the locals during the past centuries.
