One of Xaghra's more touristic attractions (and possibly most people's only reason for visiting) is the Ggantija Temples. These are on the edge of the town and are the oldest surviving man made structures in the world. It is estimated that they date from 3600BC. It doesn't take long to look around them, and in fact it's difficult to get a view that really shows them off - you need to see them from an elevated position - but it's a really worthwhile trip.
You can buy an entrance ticket that also gets you into the Ta' Kola Windmill neaby.
