Don’t miss out on an opportunity to visit the beautiful old city within the Citadel in Victoria, when it is lit up for an evening festival of lights – Lejl Imkebbes (Mediterranean Diwali)
That night, more than 30,000 candles of all forms will illuminate the narrow streets creating a wonderful magical atmosphere.
Visitors will also be able to take in the breathtaking 360-degree panorama of Gozo’s hills, valleys, villages and churches, as well as the view across to Malta.
There are numerous activities planned during the evening, including historic reenactments, the opening of public venues of interest, live entertainment and children’s activities.
Heritage Malta has said that during this event, its museums, and the Citadel Visitor Centre, will open for free between 6pm and 11pm, last admission at 10.30pm.
While you are, why not try some different specialties, with food stalls offering both Maltese and other food, with the emphasis on Indian, there will be something to suit all tastes and ages.
Lejl Imkebbes is taking place on Saturday, the 16th of March, from 6pm onwards. Entrance is free.
