Victoria and the Grand Castello
Victoria is Gozo's capital city and life bustles among the numerous shops, shopping arcades, cafes and a small market in one of its main piazzas. Enjoy going around in narrow-winding roads within the older part of the city, and going up to the Grand Castello. Better known as the Citadel, the Grand Castello is the older city of Gozo, encircled by high bastions to protect its inhabitants from possible attacks. Occupancy of this old city dates back to the Punic period, and some of the original Medieval walls are still visible along the ones built during the Knights' period. If you walk up to the highest points you will have unobstructed views covering almost all of the island. Its winding roads, niches and balconies are all yours to discover!
