Located in Gozo’s capital city of Victoria (also known as Rabat), and built on a hill, is the Ċittadella. This old fortified city full of history and culture is believed to have been inhabited since the Bronze Age, and that it later served as an administrative town during Phoenician and Roman times. Nowadays only a couple of families live within the Citadel walls. Delighting visitors with its maze of quaint alleys, hosting medieval buildings, several holy niches and bas-reliefs, the Citadel’s main attraction is in its square: the magnificent baroque Cathedral of Gozo dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary. Very close by are several fascinating small museums such as the Folklore Museum, the Museum of Archaeology and Gozo’s old prisons, amongst others. At the top of the city’s fortifications one can enjoy stunning panoramic views over Gozo.
