Fantastic view. One can see the whole countryside around. The castle is well preserved and full of interesting history. The church is superb and still is in use. So one can actually still bump into a real priest, or sometimes the bishop. The martyr’s shrines...More

GOT fans need to go here. It’s free to get in and it has great vantage points for views. There is cafe to stop and get food too.

This is a must for anyone visiting the island of Gozo. Floodlight at night. Free access to the actual citadel, with numerous places to visit within the walls at a modest cost.

Yes, you can walk around the citadel at night, in fact it is a lovely time to see it, as there are no tourists around. The lights of various towns can be seen on Gozo which is also great to see. We wandered up there after... More

There's a small car park at the top of the hill next to the wall, very close to the entrance. We paid around 2€ for as long as we wanted.

Reference should be ok but check with the agent. He should have given you a phone number. Or ask your hotel to check.
