Exploring Victoria

Across the way from Ggantija is a windmill, also a tourist site.  In order to catch my bus (which runs every 90 minutes!) back to Rabat (the central old town of the city of Victoria) and my ferry I didn’t walk over to it.  Others joined me at the bus stop and overhearing their conversation, the windmill was closed to visitors anyway, so I didn’t miss either the windmill or my bus!


Back in the capital of Gozo, I went for a wander around, getting lost in lots of little side streets of the old town Rabat, occasionally emerging onto squares before re-entering the warren of up and down and curving alleyways.  I’m intrigued by the houses, which cannot be square or rectangular considering the streets they are on!

Using the coastline as my guide, I eventually found myself on the plaza outside the Franciscan church and monastery, which looks out over the port.

The inside of the church is amazing, I only took one picture though because it felt disrespectful to take many more.  I’m not particularly church-going, however do sometimes feel that tourists invade and devalue consecrated places and don’t want to add to that.


I made my way back down to the ferry port to travel back past Comino onto Malta.
