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.
