Mdina is Malta’s former capital and much of it has been frozen in time. Looking down from its scenic hilltop perch, Malta’s ancient former capital hides treasures that are waiting to be discovered. Still a home to the Island’s aristocracy, it is now open all and a living monument to Malta’s medieval past. Discover the impressive medieval and baroque architecture present around every corner of the pedestrian narrow streets and take in the views of the surrounding villages from its imposing ramparts. Because of the peaceful stillness of its ancient streets, Mdina, is known as the Silent City. Neighbouring Rabat with its Domus Romana and catacombs of St Paul and St Agatha are also worth a visit.
