Victoria is the capital of Gozo with a population of around 6,500.It is the largest town on the island.The name was given to the town by the British Government in 1897 on the occasion of 'Queen Victoria's' Diamond Jubilee.However locals still refer back to the original name of 'Rabat'.
The whole area of Victoria is situated on a hill near the centre of the island and has been here since 'Neolithic' times.One of the town's main sites and points of interest is the 'Citadel' which sits on a hill overlooking the whole town.Victoria celebrates five main feasts every year including the feast of the 'Immaculate Conception' and feast of the 'Virgin Mary'.
