  • But a lot less inside. This "Rotunda" strikes by its inordinate size while it sits in the middle of a small village. She is so large that it is practically visible from half of the island... However, the Interior is really stripped compared to other smaller churches.

  • It is a lovely church as it has alot of histroy to it and also has alot of diffrent sculptures that are very beautiful. You can even go up to the top of the church by paying €3 for the lift to take you up were you can see a very beautiful view. I recommend going
  • You can pay €3 per person to use the elevator to go up to the third floor of the church through the sculpture museum. You can walk around the rotunda and then use the 97 steps to go up to the church clocks and more up to the highest point of the church where is the 360 degrees viewpoint of the island.
  • The church of St. John the Baptist. The guided tour with the priest was very friendly and informative. It's the biggest church in Gozo, it's huge compared to any of its surrounding buildings.
  • A masterpiece in Maltese limestone and craftsmanship.
  • Beautiful, although closed when we went. Check the timings!
