Qala
   

This quiet rural village east of Nadur has one of Malta's few surviving (but no longer working) 19th century windmills. To the east, where the coastline is characterized by cliffs and rocky outcorps, there are fine views across to the rocky island of Comino and the tiny isle of Cominotto beside it.

Qala is the farthest village from Gozo s Capital Victoria and the closes to the rest of the Maltese archipelago. Breath taking scenes can be enjoyed among other places from the Qala belvedere and from the small courtyard in front of a church dedicated to the immaculate conception but know as Santa Marija tal blat (St. Mary of the rocks).

This Church faces Comino and it is said that it was built so that people of that island would follow mass from across the straits when rough weather precluded a priest from going there.
   
Except from a few sheltered inlets, like the popular Hondoq ir-rummien (Gorge of Pomegranates), Qala's coastline is a rocky trek to which nature and history both contribute a great deal. Historical works are mainly defensive structures designed to deter enemy landings. Foremost among these is St. Anthony`s battery (1732), known as it- trunciera( the trenc). This is one of the works of the Knights of Malta
