Victoria Cittadella

This is the capital city of the island of Gozo, Victoria (Maltese: Il-Belt Victoria, also known as Rabat). Located centrally on the island, it has got almost 7,000 inhabitants. The Cittadella (Maltese: Iċ-Ċittadella) is located in the heart of the city. The present fortifications of the citadel were built in the 15th and early 16th century, but it is believed that the site has been inhabited since the Bronze Age and served as the acropolis in the Punic-Roman city of Gaulos, which was converted into a castle during the Middle Ages. It was very quiet in and around the citadel, because it was New Year’s Day, when literally everything is closed in Malta.
