Cittadella is the Victoria Castle on the island of Gozo, Malta. The area has been inhabited since the Bronze Age, and the place occupied by Cittadella is considered to be the acropolis of the Gallic or Glaucus in the Roman city of Carthage. During the Middle Ages, the Acropolis was transformed into a castle as a refuge for the population of Gozo. In the 15th century, the city walls expanded beyond the suburbs. This area has now become the historical core area of Victoria. The castle’s defenses were already weak in the 16th century. In 1551, the Ottoman army invaded Gozo and ransacked Cittadella. Between 1599 and 1622, the southern city wall of Cittadella was rebuilt and transformed into a gunpowder fortress. The northern city wall remained unchanged and still retains the medieval style. The reconstruction of the fortress was criticized at the time, so in the 17th and 18th centuries, plans to demolish the entire castle were made many times, but never implemented. Cittadella Castle played no defensive role during the French invasion and the subsequent 1798 uprising. In 1868, he was declared retirement by the British. The castle has been included in Malta’s UNESCO World Heritage List since 1998. Churches and other historic buildings can be seen in Cittadella Castle, including the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin, built on the site of an earlier church between 1697 and 1711. The castle is the highest point on the north side of Victoria City, standing on the castle can overlook the entire Victoria City.
It is a castle, a landmark, a museum, an exhibition hall, a video archive... It should be a taller building on the island. It is very humanistic, and I recommend it. The route for visiting and learning has been carefully designed, and the 360-degree panoramic image introduction is very good. The view of climbing high and looking far away is also great.
Come out from the Anatolian Civilization History Museum and climb up the stairs. It is the ancient castle of Ankara. When you climb the castle, you will be on the commanding heights of the city. The old city has a sweeping view, and the old houses and new buildings line up one after another. Put your face in front of you under the scorching sun. There is no cover. Reviews
The commanding heights in Victoria occupy a large part of the small town. The castle is very large, like a maze, most of which can be visited for free, and there are museums that require tickets to enter. The castle is a great place to overlook the city of Victoria.
The highest point in Victoria City. You can see him anywhere in the city. There are a lot of ancient treasures in it. It is also of historical significance.
