Inquisitor’s Palace, Ggantija Temples and Ta' Kola Windmill
Guided tours will also be organised at Ta' Kola Windmill and the Ġgantija Temples in Xagħra, Gozo. The tour of Ta' Kola Windmill will commence at 10.00hrs while that of Ggantija Temples at 11 a.m. Ta' Kola Windmill is located within walking distance of Ġgantija Temples and therefore visitors can proceed from Ta' Kola to the Ggantija Temples after the tour.
Ta' Kola Windmill is one of the few surviving windmills on the Maltese Islands dating back to the Knights’ period. It is a fine example of the rural economy and domestic life of Gozo in past centuries, and houses original milling mechanism, miller’s tools, as well as the blacksmith’s and carpenter’s workshop.
