  • Dwejra, with its curious rock formations and spilling seas, is a magical attraction offering opportunities of swimming in the spectacular deep-sea or in the Inland Sea, and the unique experience of diving in the so called "Blue-Hole" near the Azure Window. Dwejra is also home of the Fungus Rock or, as it is locally known, "Il-Gebla tal-General" which translates to General's Rock. It is called so in remembrance of the Italian General who centuries ago fell to his death while supervising quarrying activities in the area. History tells us that a special plant with medicinal and healing properties used to grow on Fungus Rock and because of this the Rock used to be heavily guarded during the era of the Knights of Malta. Anyone caught stealing the crop was sentenced to death or to life on the galleys. The crop was picked and brought to the mainland by using a primitive system of baskets and pulleys.
