Gharb Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 68 photos

Our Lady of Ta' Pinu Sanctuary, or Santwarju tal-Madonna ta' Pinu in Maltese, is the most popular Shrine on Gozo and lies within the perimeter of Gharb.

What impresses the most of this sanctuary, are the majestic right lines of the beautiful church surrounded by the austere environment of the cultivated fields.

Ta' Pinu Sanctuary is a place of great devotion and a shrine of national importance, numerous pilgrims, both locals and tourists visiting the church all year round.

    Impressive sanctuary. One of my foundest memories from Malta are its huge and standing often alone churches.

    Nice Gharb exposure. Do they allow visitor to climb the Lighthouse? If so, it should be very interesting thing to do right as the view will be so superb. Take care

    The Sanctuary is impressive both inside and out. Participating in a mass must have been very special for you.
