  • Having seen the main sights in Xaghra seeing Xerri's Grotto is an interesting way of filling in time before you return to your hotel. It is located in the backstreets near the village square. I was sh...  more »

  • Plan 15-20 minutes at this cave. The owner of the place showed us round enthusiastically with a small torch and was keen to explain the unique features of the attraction. This is a cool place to visit...  more »

  • It is worth going here for the novelty of discovering an active limestone cave right under someone's house. And there some nice stalactite and stalagmite formations to have a look at. Well worth the 2.50 entry fee. If you are in town for the temple you may as well pop around the corner and have a look.
  • It was cool to see the grotto, but we had to wait 30minutes for someone to come from up the road to let us in. It was also mentioned there was meant to be a talk of the caves and their discovery, but there wasn't. Would suggest going to see it, but don't expect the wow factor.
  • Nothing especially interesting. The guide was the unfriendliest ever! Didn't talk a word and looked liked he was annoyed by our present. You can definitely spend your 2,50€ better than that!
  • Relatives of person who discovered the grotto give a brief tour. Worth seeing. Quite a few steps down to the cave if struggle walking.
  • From the outside it looks like a normal Gozo residence. You press a buzzer and a lady comes and welcomes you and takes you to a cave under the house. The ladies Grandfather discovered the place and dug the place out and she has interesting facts.
