Watch Tower - Mgarr ix-Xini




Mgarr ix-Xini Watch Tower in Gozo has been opened this July for viewing after extensive restoration.

The tower, built in 1661 at the entrance of Mgarr ix-Xini Bay, was restored by the Wirt Ghawdex society supported by the Ministry for Gozo.


Both photo and information was taken from one of our local online newspapers.

I recall walking around the tower that is built on an inlet .I also remember crossing this narrow bridge to reach that tower..unless I'm confusing it with another tower..I get all mixed up with the places in Gozo.
