Ghasri

Ghasri

Ghasri is the smallest village in Gozo and its name is possibly derived from an Arabic family name.  This small village reached by forking right on the Rabat – Gharb road, is dominated by a lighthouse on Gordan hill.  Gordan lighthouse, rising 180 metres above sea level was inaugurated in1853.  Its beam can be seen up to 50 kilometres away.  Marvellous views can be enjoyed from its upper terrace.

Ghasri’'s village church was built early in the twentieth century and is dedicated to christ the Saviour.  Other chapels in Ghasri  are St. Publius chapel an on the road to Wied il-Ghasri, the rural chapel dedicated to the Patronage of Our Lady.

From the village square, a road leads to Wied il-Ghasri, at the mouth of which there is a quiet tiny beach wedged between the cliffs.  The coast from Wied il-Ghasri goes on to Marsalforn.
