Xerri's Grotto

Cave in Xagħra

In the back streets to the north of the village square lies Xerri’s Grotto. This underground cavern, complete with stalactites and stalagmites, is unusual in that it is entered through a private house. Having discovered the cave beneath his home, the owner decided to cash in on the tourist potential. Xerri’s Grotto was discovered in 1923 when Antonio Xerri was digging a well. It’s big, deep and interesting. If noone is there, just wait and someone will quickly show up.
