Gudja, Malta, is a village in the Southern Region of the country, with a population of 3200. Gudja means a land located on higher ground.
Gudja was inhabited since prehistory, as evidenced by the Ta’ Għewra dolmen and the Paleo-Christian catacomb known as ta’ Hal Resqun which is more than 1,600 years old. The oldest house in Gudja dates to at least 1533 and is still in use and in the local area a palace, known as Palazzo Dorell, was built which enclosed an unusual tower within its grounds. The local church, built in the Baroque style, is dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and it is unique in the sense that it is the only one in Malta sporting three bell towers.
A number of schools, clubs, public gardens and recreations places are found around the village and there is an increase in demand for property for sale in Gudja. Malta’s International Airport is located in the area and the village has a large number of churches, some dating from the medieval period.
