Collection: Il-Fanal ta’ Ġordan

Il-Fanal ta’ Ġordan Collection is inspired from an active lighthouse on the Maltese island of Gozo. It is located on a hill above the village of Għasri on the northern coast of the island.An earlier lighthouse was known to exist at the site in 1667, which was financed by the Knight Fra Henry de Gourdan.A semaphore station was installed on the light in the 1840s.
The current light began operation on 15 March 1853, and was built during the period when the islands were part of the British Empire.During World War II, the lighthouse was used as the location for an early warning radar station. The radar would provide information about bombers coming south from Italy, allowing air raid sirens to be activated prior to the raids.
The Collection are now available online or on our Facebook Page.❤️🇲🇹
