The Dwejra Tower Facebook page recently took a nostalgic stroll down memory lane with a captivating #ThrowbackThursday post featuring a very interesting photo from the 1950s.

The photo, titled 'Goats at Dwejra, Gozo,' beautifully captured a bygone era, showcasing the rustic charm of the Maltese landscape. As indicated by the title of the photograph, goats are the main protagonist here which is not something that we see on an everyday basis nowadays!

Taken by the talented Maltese photographer, Guido Stilon, the image not only freezes a moment in time but also serves as a reminder of the connection between Gozo's pastoral life and its picturesque surroundings.

As one engages in this delightful visual journey, the photo evokes a sense of nostalgia, inviting reflection on the rich cultural and natural heritage that defines Dwejra.

The photographer's lens skillfully preserves the simplicity and beauty of a moment, allowing us to appreciate the timeless allure of Gozo's landscapes through the lens of history.
