Things to do in Gozo

We want to make your stay on Gozo with Baron Holiday Homes more than just a holiday. So we created the Baron Experience - it's your key to unlocking the treasures to be found on our beautiful island.

Things to see in Gozo

Gozo may be a small island in the Mediterranean, but it has a long and fascinating history stretching back 7,000 years. Gozo's vibrant history is flavoured with diverse cultural influences including African, Italian (Sicilian), Arabic, and British. You can see these influences all over the island - from the megalithic Gġantija temples at Xagħra (among the oldest free-standing structures in the world), to the Maltese language and Arabic place names, to Gozo's delicious Sicilian-inspired cuisine and baroque churches, and even the odd iconic red British telephone box.

In Gozo's capital Victoria (known as Rabat by the locals), you can glimpse Gozo's Medieval past in its maze of narrow alleyways. And from the walls of the fortified Citadella you can gaze out on Gozo's tranquil countryside – standing where the Phoenicians, Romans, and crusading Knights of St John did in times past. All this drama in a small gem of an island – that's Gozo!

Today on Gozo you'll find recipes passed down through the generations but given a modern twist.
