If you go to the Ggantija temples, the entry to the windmill is included, which is nice. Only the windmill has shorter operating hours - last entry 16.30. Looks nice, though I didn't not get there in time to enter.

One of the last working windmills in Malta. It is a local and national treasure. Worth a visit and a stroll around the village.
