Malta – Gozo – Victoria – Air Raid Shelters

Located under the Cittadella is this 32-room complex constructed during the Second World War to be used as an air raid shelter. The complex fell into disuse recently, but a €50,000 renewal was announced in early 2018 to open them back up again. Unfortunately, the plan to re-open them towards the end of 2018 doesn’t seem to have worked out. I’m basing that on the fact that it’s 2019 and they’re still shut…. Anyway, at least work is on-going.

An information panel by the entrance. If I can get back to Gozo in a few years to see the new museum, I can hopefully come here as well.
