About the neighbourhood
Xewkija is famous for its contemporary parish church to St John the Baptist, known simply as 'the Rotunda'. Not only does it dominate the village, it dominates the entire island. The village with its population fewer than 3,000 has an eccentrically suburban air for an agricularal community.

Getting around
Car/Jeep hire is recommended. Those who want to use public transport may do so as the bus stop is just a few minutes walk away.There are also two mountain bikes available for you. The price is four (4) euros daily for each bike.
