Victoria, Gozo, Malta

Rock walls and terraced fields lead up to the old (3,500 years old!) fortified city of Victoria on the island of Gozo. The city is still known locally by its former name, Rabat, and at its heart is the Cathedral of the Assumption. Surrounding the cathedral like a crown of thorns are intermittent rings of paddle cactuses, imports from the Americas. [2009]
