Location and Area of Il-Mithna.
 
Xewkija, which is situated between Ghajnsielem and the capital town, Victoria, is the oldest village in Gozo. This makes it close to everywhere since the island is just 4 miles by 9 miles. The farmhouse is just 1.5km from the closest beach which is called Mgarr ix-Xini. It is a beautiful unspoilt beach with just a couple of boat houses and a nice little restaurant. Xewkija is just 25 minutes walk from Victoria which is the main town where you will find the citadel and all the museums, the market and also the shopping centres.
 
The other village next to Xewkija is Xaghra where one can find other attractions such as the oldest standing temple in the world, Calypso cave and other places of interest. In Xewkija there is a diving centre, restaurants, and bars. Just 1 minute walk away from the farmhouse one can find the finest and most renowned bakery in Gozo and several groceries and butchers' shops. Xewkija is a nice and traditional village where to walk through, the roads of which lead to the picturesque valley of Mgarr ix-Xini or to Ta' Cenc Cliffs. Here one can have a look at the prehistoric cart ruts and dolmens.
 
The word Xewkija is derived from the Arabic language and the meaning behind it implies that there had been vast fields full of thorns in the past. Xewkija is well known for its majestic church - the Rotunda - which is dedicated to St. John the Baptist. This church, which replaced a much older one, also accomodates the Seat of the Knights of the Order of St. John. It was built fro Maltese stone by local masons and craftsmen. It is the largest in Gozo and its dome dominates the village. Its architect was Joseph D'Amato.
 
When one enters the village from the main road one sees the remains of a mill erected in the times of Grand Master Perellos. This is a unique mill in Gozo because it has points which show the eight principal wind directions.
 
On the site where the present church is, it is said that there was a stone known as 'Maqghad ix-Xih'. Near it there is a small ancient chapel known as Madonna tal-Hniena (Our Lady of Charity) which is dedicated to San Bartolomeo. There is a tower with the oldest sundial in Xewkija. Remains of Tinghi Tower disappeared in the last century. These towers date back to 1613. Another 14th century tower which was used by the Grandmasters as a summer residence was the Tower of Gorgion, also in Xewkija. It was demolished (brought down) to make way for a temporary airport during the Second World War.
 
The coat of arms of Xewkija is a shield on a gold background with a red horizontal strip between two thorns, one above and one below.
The population of Xewkija is about 3,550 and its area is 4km sq.
