Gozo is a small island of the Maltese archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea. The island is part of the Southern European country of Malta; after the island of Malta itself, it is the second-largest island in the archipelago. Compared to its southeastern neighbour, Gozo is more rural and known for its scenic hills, which are featured on its coat of arms. The island of Gozo has long been identified as Ogygia, the domain of the nymph Calypso in Homer's Odyssey. Calypso, possessed of great supernatural powers, holds Odysseus captive for a number of years because of her love for him before releasing him to continue his journey home. The island itself has a population of around 31,000 people, and its inhabitants are known as Gozitans. It is rich in historical locations such as the Ggantija temples which, along with the Megalithic Temples of Malta, are the world`s oldest free-standing structures and also the world`s oldest religious structures. Tim and Miaomiao visited Gozo on a boat tour from Malta in June 2011.
