The Citadel or "Gran Castello" has an imposing cathedral, impressive historic bastions and the quaint remains of old houses. One of these, the so-called "Norman House", has recently been restored and set up as a folk museum. There is also a Museum of Archaeology and the Cathedral Museum.
GGANTIJA PREHISTORIC TEMPLES

This cave, overlooking the red sands of Ramla Bay and situated in the cliff face some distance from Xaghra, has a legendary connection with Calypso, but aIso dominates one of the most inspiring views in Malta and Gozo.

Comino is the smallest island in the Maltese archipelago. Only a handful of farmers live here and neither cars, nor other noisy activities disturb the peaceful tranquility of this little paradise. There is only one cozy beach hotel. If you are in your element in or beside the sea, Comino offers vacationers the ideal setting. The many bays and rocks in Comino and the cristal-clear waters are ideal for any kind of water sports, especially snorkeling and scuba diving. There is regular ferry service to, and from, Malta and Gozo.
