Gozo, the second largest island of the Maltese archipelago, is 14.5 km long and 7.25 km wide. It covers an area of 67 sq km, and has a circumference of about 43 km. Its present population is around 30,000. Iċ-Ċittadella, until recently known to one and all as Il-Belt, the city par excellence, is the island’s best known landmark and its major tourist attraction. It stands just over 140 m above sea level and covers an area of 2,500 sq mt. It is 3 km away from the sea. 

Situated in the very heart of the island, Iċ-Ċittadella fits like a crown on princely Gozo and the Cathedral Church, with its towering bell-tower, is the jewel set in this crown.
