Nadur is a village in Gozo, Malta. It has a population of 4500. The word “Nadur” means “look out”. Archaeological evidence of settlement were a number of large flat stones found in a field between San Blas Bay and Daħlet Qorrot. Nadur may also have been founded during the time of the Greeks, with a bronze statue of Apollo said to be found in Nadur in 1744. During the reign of the Knights of St. John, a watch tower was built called Dahlet Qorrot Tower or San Blas Tower, for the two bays lying on either side of it. The tower is locally known as Isopu Tower.
Another watchtower found in Nadur is Ta’ Kenuna Tower built by the British towards the middle of the 19th century. From the orchards of Nadur come most of the local fruits such as plums, peaches, apples, oranges and lemons.
San Blas has both residential areas, relatively old and new, very fertile land and picturesque valleys. At Daħlet Qorrot many locals own caves and garages where they keep their fishing boats. San Blas, a tiny, sandy bay is on the north-eastern coast. It is a favourite spot for swimming for local residents. The Ta’ Kenuna area was developed in the early 1980s.
The construction of the present church was started on 28 September 1760.
