The ‘girna’ is a sort of hut found in the Maltese countryside. The interior of these huts is inevitably domeshaped, but the exterior takes on a variety of forms - circular, oval, square, rectangular. There are 'double' giren, and giren surrounded by a buttressing wall. Others have a second storey built on top. Some are even incorporated into rubble walls, though these are small and only suitable for sheltering one or two persons.

Great note, this is a type of structure I never knew, but am really pleased to learn of, especially when illustrated by a beautiful shot like this. Perfect composition placing the gima ideally on thirds, while creating great depth in the view to the landscape beyond. Really nice image, thanks for sharing.
