Joe Xuereb was born on 26th June 1954 and lives in Ghajnsielem, the first village the visitor meets after landing in Mgarr harbour. He studied art at the Gozo Lyceum but his career really launched itself off in the 1970's, after working and studying under the tutelage of the late British archaelogist Marie Claridge, then active at her 'Gozo 20' studio on the outskirts of Ghajnsielem. He discovered his artistic inspiration in Neolithic sculpture, a field rarely exploited by other local artists and over the years, though his message has cut across universal boundaries, has made his reputation by specializing in this type of art.
Built before the famous standing stones at Stonehenge, the two temples making up this remarkable UNESCO World Heritage site have an extraordinary history. Built between 3600 and 3200 B.C, they fell into disuse around 2500BC and were not fully revealed to the modern eye until the nineteenth century.

This article is about Ramla Bay in Gozo. There is another Ramla Bay near Marfa, Mellieha (Island of Malta).
Ramla Bay is located at the bottom of a rich and fertile valley on the northern side of the island of Gozo. Gozo is one of the Maltese islands. The village of Xagħra, located on one of the hills of Gozo, overlooks this valley. It is about a forty-minute walk from Xagħra to the bay. The bay can also be reached from the village of Nadur. Bus service to the beach is very regular. The terraced walls built by the farmers give the valley an appearance of a quilt when viewed from the high ridges surrounding it.

The Dwejra Tower was built in 1652 during the magistracy of Grand Master Giovanni Paolo Lascaris, and was funded by the Università of Gozo. It is one of the Lascaris towers, and the intention behind its construction was for it to act as a watchtower and guard the surrounding areas from oncoming enemies, most especially pirate landings. This tower, just like the other towers, could communicate to nearby defence fortifications through fire and smoke, at night and during the day respectively. The expenses for running the tower were covered by producing salt from the salt pans near it. It was equipped with three 6-pounder guns in the eighteenth century. In 1744, Grand Master Pinto made going to the Fungus Rock illegal because a fungus which grew there was believed to have medicinal powers, and Dwejra Tower was used as a lookout to prevent anyone climbing on the islet
