Town Information: Sannat Gozo, a quant agricultural village in southern Gozo, Sannat is one of the few places where you can still see lace being made. In the summer months you may see elderly women seated outside their homes making delicate shawls, table mats or lace-edged handkerchiefs. Sannat is also known for its carved stone balconies. These days the most conspicuous are the brand new ones, with their ornate and fanciful decoration. The focal point of this straggling village is the parish church, dedicated to St. Margaret and built in 1781. Beyond the village the sheer cliffs of Ta Cenc drop 180m down to the sea. From Sannat , a 1.5km walk along a country road and then a valley will bring you to the pretty little inlet of Mgarr ix-Xini
