The Maltese Girna is mostly found on the northern part
of Malta .The foreground of the picture, however, shows a rare example
of a Girna with a circular plan on the island of Gozo. The Girna is first
documented in the sixteenth century. Typically it is constructed with skill
from stones found in the surrounding fields. It served as a convenient
place of shelter for the farmer, but occasionally also served as his residence.
