|Email item||Print item||
Heritage Malta, in collaboration with the Xaghra Local Council, is organising an Open Day at Ta’ Kola Windmill to mark the occasion of Jum ix-Xaghra. This promises to be a unique attraction in the village.
Ta’ Kola Windmill is one of several windmills in Gozo dating back to the Knights’ Period. Heritage Malta said that it is the only one on the island that has been restored to its originality and can even be operated. The miller’s workshop still houses the original tools belonging to the last miller.
The complete restoration of the windmill was completed by Heritage Malta in 2016, with the work carried out over a period of three years.
The Open Day is taking place on Sunday, the 28th of April, when the windmill will be open for free.
On the day, 3 guided tours will be offered at 1.30pm (in Maltese), 2.30pm (in English) and 3.30 hours (in Maltese). Following each tour lasting approximately 45 minutes, the windmill’s vanes will be rotated – an event which is not to be missed.
Local delicacies particular to the village of Xaghra will be served during the day, including traditional brewed coffee.
Admission is free of charge.
The Open Day is from 9.00am to 5.00pm (last admission at 4.30pm).
