The village of Għajnsielem is situated in the South West of Gozo. Għajnsielem is the first village that one encounters as soon as one leaves l-Imġarr Harbour. The village occupies an extensive spread of land divided in the middle by a valley which meanders its way down to the sea.
 
 From the geological perspective, one can say that the area is mainly composed of the Upper Coralline Limestone and on the periphery it is composed of Blue Clay Formation (around Fort Chambray). Furthermore, beneath Fort Chambray there is also Globigerina Limestone which overlies the Lower Coralline Limestone formation.
