Villas in Victoria

The Gozitans call the charming capital of Gozo ‘Rabat’, its original name before the British Governor changed it in 1897 to mark Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. Above the town the impressive citadel is a marvelous place to wander around, with its narrow alleys, rampart walls and panoramic views over Gozo. This fortified city is home to a few residents, historically fascinating museums, cafes and shops. Down the hill is Independence Square or It-Tokk where you can stock up on supplies such a towels, sun hats and local crafts in the market or just sit and enjoy the atmosphere in one of the many outdoor cafes.

Rabbit and meat stew is very popular, followed by a delicious selection of desserts including figolli (almond stuffed pastry), qaghaq tal-ghasel (honey rings), cassata, (ricotta filled sponge with marzipan) or kannoli, (ricotta-filled fried pastries). The Gozitan people also love their strong coffee accompanied by a sweet biscuit!

    Nightlife

    Although Gozo is a relaxed island, a few clubs can be found in the capital. The Gozitan way of life is traditionally slow-paced and so many enjoy the evening at a good local restaurant with a bottle of wine. there are many restaurants and bars to choose from in the city centre, suitable for all tastes. As a cultural hub, theatre and recitals are very popular in the area, and you can often find a jazz concert or play going on in one of the theatres or churches.
