Make the climb to the top of Gozo's first fortifications, Citadel, and take in expansive views of the island and beyond. The walls date back to the Bronze Age, around 1,500 BCE, and since then have been subject to multiple sieges. Walk the full circuit of the ramparts for viewpoints overlooking the island's open countryside and Victoria, Malta, across the water. Several other attractions are housed within, including the Archaeology Museum, the Folklore Museum, the Natural Science Museum, the Old Prisons, and the Gozo Cathederal. Admission to all of these are included with the purchase of a multi-site ticket. Be aware that while the walk is short, it is a steep climb up to the top.

Clean cinemas. Good sound and comfortable seats. Nice way to spend an evening watching a good film. Always a pleasure to visit when in Gozo.
Worth it to visit. Once it was for 2 yrs the heart of the independent Gozo. They were really tough... Take a look and your time to discover more abt Gozo.
