“All Gozo at a glance!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Though one may get the impression that this place is not in very good condition one has to keep it mind that it dates back to the times of the Knights of Saint John. What is really wonderful about it is the view. This, I believe, is the highest point in Gozo and from there you can see the whole island.

“Gozo under your feet”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Excellent view point. Different in different times of day. Good preserved and you can feel heritage breathing from each stone.

“Great view but kind of crumbly”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We missed the ferry bus so we walked back into the city to tour the walled Citadel. Life was dangerous for islanders from raiding invaders. Up until the late 1600’s, citizens were required to sleep here at night for protection. Now it is kind of crumbly, overgrown with vegetation, contains a couple museums (we didn't see), but offered some great views!

“History and a great view”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

A historically interesting sight, which offers great views of Gozo as well. Lots of stairs, so remember footwear you can walk in. A sight worth seeing in Victoria, the charming capital of Gozo.

“CITADEL CITY”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The Citadel stands at the heart of Viktoria on the Island of Gozo. It is pretty impressive and worth a free walk around. When you get to the church you will be asked to pay to go in there.

Quite a few steps to climb, which may put off some people. Good views all around. There were little workshops for Lace and Jewellry.

I've marked it down to 4-stars because there was a lot of scaffolding in place for the restoration works.
