About
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.

Best preserved windmill in Gozo
Nov 2020
Once you buy the ticket for the temples, you get access to this windmill. there is a few floors to visit, with some information about the miller. It opens 3 or 4 days a week, for visitors.

How the Knights lived
Nov 2019
Across the road from Ggantija, the old windmill is a museum filled with tools used by millers that worked and lived here for hundreds of years. It's well worth the time to see how folks lived on Malta centuries ago and how grain was made into flour.

Gozo windmill
Oct 2019 • Friends
This windmill gives a gorgeous look to this area of Gozo. Although we didn't plan to go inside it, the entry for the same is included in the ticket of Ggantija temple (which is a must visit). So once you buy the ticket for the temple, keep it safe inside your bag; which can be used for the entry of the windmill too. The ticket is for €9, which includes entry to both the attractions.

Old windmill
May 2019
We did not plan to visit it, but the entry is included in the ticket for Ggantuja temples so we gave it a look. Good exhibition of old times work (and tools) at the windmill - the mill itself dates back to 1725 and is one of the few surviving windmills on the Maltese Islands dating to the Period of the Knights. The kitchen, dining room and bedrooms were recreated with use of old, traditional furniture and items related to Gozitan craft.

Great little windmill
Dec 2019 • Solo
I visited this windmill after visiting the Stones further along the road. For €10 I was able to see both of these attractions so if you buy a ticket for one do not throw it away as you can use it for the. I would not have paid €10 just to see the Windmill however it was very interesting inside with lots to show you as well as the tools that we use but the accommodation. Worth a little visit if you are in the area I also visited on the road up to the Windmill and old musical theatre that was selling coffee and it was a lot quieter than the square and like going back to the 70's

We had a ticket for this and Ggantija and nearly did not come to the mill but it is a great little museum and well worth visiting. Lots of interesting tools and history, including a short history of food production in the region.

Interesting
Oct 2019
This was a really interesting place to visit. You get to go through the living quarters, and go all the way to the top to see the mill stones.

The stairs are a little narrow and uneven (to be expected from very old buildings), so take your time.
