Gozo’s Ancient City
The Cittadella, also known as the Citadel, in Victoria Gozo, is a combination of a medieval castle and an early modern gunpowder fortress. The northern walls retain a largely medieval form and its southern walls date back to the 17th century reconstruction. The Citadel has been included on Malta’s tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1998. The fort was recently renovated offering a walk along the bastions. This is rewarded with a breathtaking 360-degree panorama of Gozo. Hills and valleys, villages and churches and the view right across the sea to Malta dominate the picturesque scenery.
One can also find a number of museums; The Cathedral Museum, The Museum of Archaeology, The Folklore Museum, The Gozo Nature Museum, The Old Prison, The Old Gunpowder Magazine, The Grain Silos, The Battery and the World War II Shelter.
