Kirkop is a quaint village typical of the ancient settlements of the South. Despite its proximity to the airport, it still retains a rural charm. By the late 15th century it was large enough to warrant two churches; both were rebuilt and embellished in the 17th century. It became a separate parish in 1592 when it split from nearby Gudja, one of the 10 original parishes formed in the early 15th century. Its prehistoric stature can be seen in one of the few Menħir stones stll standing, and the only one which was transformed to a Christian symbol - as the cross on top of it suggests.
