Great old construction. It isn't really a castle but there are many features as such. There are dungeons, canons, great stairs leading to high walls. Amazing place. There are also restaurants and shops within the place. The church and museum were very nice. Be warned...More

Massive structure that you could quite easily spend a day going round. The views from the ramparts are stunning. The traditional old house is a warren of rooms and information. The church as stunning as all churches and includes a trompe-l’oeil. Well worth a visit...More

We stopped here and enjoyed a stroll around that area. To our surprise we met some very friendly people from Gozo who explained us the history of this area. Nice.

This is a must for anyone visiting the island of Gozo. Floodlight at night. Free access to the actual citadel, with numerous places to visit within the walls at a modest cost.

The citadel in the night is magnificent. In the day, the old prison is an interesting place to explore. Really like the small streets there. Would like to return again.

Paid 5 euro's each to see all the little museums etc. Had a great day walking around the citadel. All the staff were really friendly and would recommend the cafe where the staff were great and the food lovely.

Yes, you can walk around the citadel at night, in fact it is a lovely time to see it, as there are no tourists around. The lights of various towns can be seen on Gozo which is also great to see. We wandered up there after... More

There's a small car park at the top of the hill next to the wall, very close to the entrance. We paid around 2€ for as long as we wanted.

Reference should be ok but check with the agent. He should have given you a phone number. Or ask your hotel to check.
