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.

This only takes about 20 minutes to go around. But it has been lovingly preserved and deserves its 5 stars for that.

The exhibition information was very good. The windmill wasn’t working. The attendant could have given us more initial information about it.

We visited this windmill because entry was included with the entrance ticket to the nearby temples. It was fairly interesting, but I wouldn't make a special effort to come here.
