South of the Grand Harbour, Birgu is a fortified city with a rich military and maritime history. In 1530, the Knights of St John made Birgu Malta’s Capital...
SPECTACULAR VIEWS FROM THE CITADELLA
A climb to the top of the Citadel offers spectacular views of the Gozitan landscape that are not to be missed. The site dates back all the way to prehistory but has evolved over time. From a medieval castle to an 18th Century fortress the Citadel, or Citadella, even played a key role in the Great Siege of Malta of 1565. A walk through the city gates is like stepping back in time. Narrow winding streets curve off the beautiful baroque Cathedral of Santa Marija. The Citadel also offers many historic attractions, including the Gozo Museum of Archaeology, Grancastello Historic House and Folklore Museum, Gozo Nature Museum and the Old Prison.
Museums and cafes surround the Gozo Citadel. It's also Wheelchair accessible. For more info check out https://t.co/48bReTqprc 😃⚔️🗝️⚜️♿️⛪️— WowMalta Tips (@WowMalta) September 1, 2017
Opening hours for Heritage Malta sites run from 09:00 to 17:00 with last admissions at 16:30. Prices range from €2.50 for children to €5 for adults. Youths and seniors also benefit from the discounted rate of €3.50 and if you are planning on visiting many attractions across Malta and Gozo, there is also the option of purchasing a Multisite pass. Bus routes around Gozo are extensive. The 301 bus offers the most direct route to the Citadel and runs between the ferry port at Mgarr to Victoria, which lies directly beneath the Citadel walls. The Citadel ramparts have recently benefitted from a full restoration, co funded by the European Union, so now is definitely the perfect time for a visit.
Visiting #Gozo? Make sure to visit the Victoria's Citadel, it has played a very important role in the history of Gozo. It was recently fully restored and is a gorgeous architectural work. ☺️😍👌⛪️ 📹 by @jorgep156 For more about Gozo: www.wowmalta.com.mt #malta #wowmalta #summer #sea #travel #visitmalta #comino #valletta #malta🇲🇹 #travelphotography #maltaphotography #malta2017 #bluegrotto #gozophotography #visitmalta #gozoisland #visitgozo #maltalovers #maltagozo #victoria #maltagram #lovegozo
