Gozo – Victoria – Stone Cross

This stone cross is similar to many other located across the island and it marks the perimeter of the church grounds. This one is thought to have been particularly important as it belonged to the Gozo Matrice, which is now the city’s cathedral. It has been sited in this square for some time, although was moved in the 1960s (or 1970s depending on the source, and I have no obvious way of checking which it is) when the road was widened. When they restored it recently they discovered another level of stones at the base that they hadn’t realised were there.
