San Lawrenz, Island of Gozo

San Lawrenz ©
San Lawrenz is a village on the island of Gozo, Malta. Let the collections at Old Prison in Victoria, island of Gozo and Gran Castello Historic House capture your imagination. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Dwejra Bay and St. George's Basilica. There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic natural features at Blue Hole, get all the information you need at Cittadella Visitors' Centre, steep yourself in history at Citadel, and contemplate the waterfront views at Inland Sea.

To find photos, ratings, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our San Lawrenz online travel route planner.

There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum, steep yourself in history at Auberge de Castille, step into the grandiose world of Casa Bernard, and take in the history at Saluting Battery.
