One of the must see attractions on Gozo is the Fourteen Stations of The Cross. Many people, however, miss these as the stations are on a hill side that appears steeper than it really is. None of the four of us had any problem hiking up the trail.
Note that the images below are not quite in order as I needed to combine horizontals in separate rows from verticals.
In order to not bore those not interested in
seeing all fourteen stations, I've hidden then from view.

Out in he farming fields, the areas are separated by stone walls, many of them built so finely that they represent buildings' walls. They serve basically two functions: to mark where field borders are and, not so obviously, to level the ground in between the walls
|As can be see from the pictures above, the use of rock walls is spread all over the farming areas of the island. The photos below show differences in land heights at the stone fences, especially in figure 4 where the ground is almost above the fence top (on the other side). Figure 6 shows how the rock fences have been used to separate farm lands for centuries.|
