Of great interest... More

We returned to the Citadel several times during our stay. The ancient prison and the accommodations within were 2 of the points of interest within. The big attraction is the view of the Island of Gozo. See the Mediterranean in every direction and appreciate the history, challenges and independent nature of Gozo's people. Yes they're Maltese but moreso they're Gozitans... More

This magical place is too special for us. Whenever we visit Gozo it's a must to visit more than once! And with the latest renovations it's even more special! :)

The newly restored Cittadella in Gozo is a must-see for all those who have history and archaeology at heart. The visitors' interactive centre together with the other places of interest such as the cathedral, the winding streets, and the amazing view of the Island from the top of the bastions offers the visitor a wealth of enjoyment and an unforgettable...

Nothing too spectacular here, some nice views from the walls. Defintely worth a walk around but you won't need too long here.

The restoration and partial reconstruction of the Citadel really could not be bettered. The work has been ongoing for the last couple of years and it's a real joy to see how beautifully the work has been carried out.

The citadel of Victoria on the island of Gozo is a lovely piece of ancient architecture. It offers stunning views of Gozo and is with a 30-minute visit.

Lovely Island with a peaceful atmosphere. I hire a farmhouse for a week or two for all my family for a nice quality time.

The Citadel is a 'must visit' place if you go to the Island of Gozo. A great deal of money has been recently spent on making Citadel accessible to the Mobility Impaired, including ramps and stair-lifts. A great deal of sympathetic repair work has also been carried out, and is now completed to a very high standard. The 360 degree... More
