7 stunning shots of Gozo’s Cittadella during last weekend’s Festival of Lights
So romantic!

Jillian Mallia

Last weekend, the gorgeous Cittadella in Gozo was lit up by some 30,000 candles of all shapes and sizes for Lejl Imkebbes – the festival of lights (Mediterranean Diwali). Coloured candles lined the narrow streets, giving a magical vibe to the whole city. Didn’t make it? Scroll down and see for yourself (and perhaps pencil it in for next year!)
