  The Cittadella is in the centre of Gozo, Malta’s sister island. The small fortified town is situated on a promontory sited over the town of Victoria (also known as Rabat). This vantage point was obviously chosen because it was a naturally fortified hill which dominated the surrounding countryside and provided visual control of the coastal areas (source).

A chapel dedicated to the Annunciation of Our Lady is found at the entrance of Lunzjata....
