High above the city of Victoria on Gozo you can see a strong fortification, the Cittadella. It was created in medieval times and later became a home to the Knights Hospitaller. Over time the fortification lost its importance and was replaced by castles at the sea. Today you can walk on the remparts and enjoy good views on the island, visit the cathedral Santa Marija and explore three museums (natural history museum, ethnological museum, archaeological museum).
This has been made possible between 2007 and 2013 through massive restoration works co-financed by the European Union. And it was worth every cent: it’s a great pleasure to discover this Cittadella and you immediately feel like in medieval times. If you want to park your car there is a car park directly next to the castle. The owner charges you only a small fee and you don’t need to climb up the hill.
