Xewkija - Church of St John the Baptist

Xewkija is the oldest parish on the island outside Victoria and is dominated by the impressive dome of its parish church. The dome (75m high) is immense and can be seen from just about every part of Gozo. The church (built between 1951 and 1971) is also huge as it actually went up around the old Baroque church which remained in use until its removal when the new build was complete.
