People in the citadel had pretty much a 360-degree view of the entire island. And enough land inside to grow food in case of a long siege.
Malta and Gozo are home to some of the most amazing fortified towns. Here on Gozo, there's a massive citadel overlooking the town and countryside, just 5 minutes walk from where we stay. The walls and structures are so large that it's basically impossible to capture how impressive it really is, with just photos from the ground.
I'm sure there's a good story behind this coat of arms.

Got a crappy, not-the-right-size rental MTB at an otherwise excellent bike shop and explored the island a bit today. Nice weather!
