San Lawrenz is a charming traditional village situated on the west of the island of Gozo and next to the Ta’ Dbiegi Craft Village. The village is built upon a flat surface surrounded by three hills - Ta' Ghammar, Ta' Gelmus and Ta' Dbiegi. The latter is 195 metres above sea level and boasts the highest point in Gozo.

San Lawrenz also has within its territory the beautiful Dwejra Bay which is renowned for its unique ecological aspects, not only recognised by all Gozitans and locals but also internationally. The Dwejra nature reserve is administratively part of the town. Prominently in the reserve is the Fungus Rock, and formerly also the Azure Window landmark before its collapse on March 8 2017

This picturesque village has succeeded in retaining its traditional, rural lifestyle despite the presence of a five-star hotel (the Kempinski San Lawrenz offering a wide range of health and spa treatments) on its fringes.

San Lawrenz is one of two villages named after a saint in Gozo. The other one is that of Santa Lucija. By the 4th century AD the devotion towards Saint Lawrence had spread worldwide and also reached our shores. By the end of the middle ages there were three churches dedicated to Saint Lawrence, one inside the Citadel, one near Ta' Ghodlien and another at Ta' Ciangura. The village assumed the name from the church.

It was established as a parish on 15 March 1893. Before this date, the area was known as Ta’ Ċangura, and as such its existence can be traced back to before the tragic Siege of Gozo in 1551 that saw most of the population enslaved by the Ottoman Turks.

Until it was declared a parish in its own right, it formed part of the neighborhood of l-Għarb. However, the people of San Lawrenz decided they wanted a separate community and their own church. The foundation stone for this new church was laid and consecrated in 1886 with a relic of Saint Lawrence placed carefully beneath it. Every villager participated with great enthusiasm in the building of the church.

The village feast of San Lawrenz is celebrated in the first week of August which also coincides with the Persiad showers (shooting stars) known as the tears of San Lawrenz.
