Victoria and Citadel

It was until the fourth day in Gozo that we had a closer look at Victoria .  The past days were come and go: coming from the pier to change to Xlendi , taking a boat to Comino , etc. Right in the morning, little squares were full of residents, shops were opened, busy but not crowded.  We saw many older people sitting and relaxing at Kafe de Gorg .  It is a good sign for good food because the elderly knows where to go.  Different pastries were sitting in a glass cubicle to attract guests.  And so, why not?

Victoria is the most inhabited area, centre and transportation hub in Gozo . If you stay in

The Dingli cliffs stretch for a few kilometres. Some edges are sharp with a flat cliff and an occasional cavern.  Other cliffs descend in a sloping terrain to the water. Different forms of rock amazed us.  It is gorgeous to admire the beautiful Mediterranean. It is soothing, amid the strong winds top of the cliffs. Situated south of Malta stands the lonely Filfla , an uninhabited, barren rock islet. It can be seen along the Dingli Cliffs or at Hagar Qim Temples .  It was sad in the afternoon but looked fabulous under the sun. Apart from the beautiful nature, there s a tiny chapel dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene .  It was built in 1646.  Although it was recently restored, its door was closed t
