150th Anniversary Citadel Civil Status

This weekend marked the 150th Anniversary of the citadel in Victoria, Gozo changing from a militarised fortress to a civilian one. Around the city a number of re-enactments were organised showing the experience of life in the Gran Castello and the city streets.

Heritage Malta also opened its doors to the sites they administer in the city for free admission as part of the festivities.

The Citadel Visitor Centre for the first time displayed architectural plans of the site showing the military perspective and how it was restored by its many rulers.
