The Comino Walk
There is more to Comino than just the Blue Lagoon during tourist season. This pleasant island offers many stories, sights and scenes stretching back across the ages. Join us as we take you to the small church near Santa Marija Bay, where it is said a chapel to Saint Mary existed as far back as 1296. Comino even has its own fortifications, residents and a history of habitation. One may also ask about the story behind the cemetery on Comino – a place that was used for foreigners with infectious diseases up until the Isolation Hospital of World War 1.
Comino offers a world of its own – a unique place of mystery and culture that is often overlooked when passing between Malta and Gozo. Take a step into the unknown and discover what stories one can tell about this small island. Did you know that there is a hermit’s cave on the island, where an exiled Jewish mystic wrote sacred texts. Who else made use of Comino during the past centuries?
Make sure that you will have water to drink, a snack, and good walking shoes – do not forget the sun tan. We will be meeting at the Comino ferry in Cirkewwa (near the Gozo ferry) at 9:30am on the 30th of April.
