Gudja is one of the oldest villages on the islands. The chapel of Our Lady known as Ta' Bir Miftuħ now stands alone in the countryside, and one can see it before entering the main tunnel at the airport. This Chapel was restored recently and is an important historical and architectural site of the pre-baroque period. It contains a series of frescoes. Nothing remains of the earlier surrounding village except for the base of a stone militia cross. `Modern' Gudja is typical of southern Maltese villages but perhaps unusual in that it has three baroque churches; one is a fine example of the work of Maltese architect Tumas Dingli (1591-1666). This parish church dominates the tiny village,whereas on the outskirts of Gudja, is a lovely country house known as Casa d'Auriel or Casa Bettina, with unique gardens.
