Overview

OPEN MONDAY - SUNDAY from 09.00 Till 17.00Hrs (last admission at 16.30Hrs). Ta' Kola Windmill in Xaghra, Gozo, is one of the few surviving windmills on the Maltese Islands dating back to the Knights' Period. Its origins go back to 1725 during the magistracy of Grand Master Manoel de Vilhena (1722-36). Nowadays, the windmill houses one of the largest known collections of tools, some of which were manufactured by the last miller who lived inside the mill. The site offers a glimpse into the traditional rural life of the locals during the past centuries.

Straight from the outset you can read up on the last miller, who really sounds like a fascinating chap, before learning about the whole craft in this stunningly restored windmill. May not be everyone's cup of tea but if you enjoy a bit of history...More

Nice enough place. A good job done in telling the story of the last miller to live here, which really brings the place alive. Excellent views from the top and interesting artefacts all through. We got in with a combined ticket from the megalithic temples...More

Built in 1725, this is a well documented and historic tribute to both the history of windmills on Gozo but also to the history of a particular family who lived and worked here for several centuries. Worth a visit.

Very well presented restored windmill with a interesting view of Gozo life from late 19th, early 20th century.

This is the last of the 12 built by the Knights. Well worth a visit as interesting and cute. entrance is included on the entrance fee for the temples near by, but it does close at 4.30pm.

It definitely is a step back in time, getting to see how the locals worked and lived back in the past. Very interesting to see up close tools and other objects they would have used. Also how they lived with the living quarters. It won't...More

Quote a small site woth a large amount of history, there is plenty of information available. Worth visiting if visiting the Ggantija Temples which are a few hundred metres down the road.

This is a pleasant venue for a couple of photographs but not much else. on a plus this is only yards from the Ggantija Temples which are worth the visit. so pop by and visit the windmill while doing that.

A nice little windmill, well preserved and gives a good idea of what it would have been like many years ago - shows how they used to forge iron, make fabric and produce bread - the tickets are €9 each but gives you access to...More
