One of the best ways to immerse yourself in Malta’s rich history is to visit our old capital city, Mdina.
‘Citta’ Notabile’ or the ‘Noble City’ is a unique feat of archiecture, blending medieval and baroque. This gives Mdina a special atmosphere, especially at night when the whole city is lamp lit.
You can take a tour of the Natural History Museum as soon as you enter the Main Gate in Mdina, or if you’re brave enough, try the Mdina Dungeons!
A must-see is St. Paul’s Cathedral. This is located in a large ‘pjazza’, and is a popular choice for many weddings and official ceremonies. This cathedral is home to many historical pieces, such as a baptismal font dating back to 1495. Some of the marble used in the cathedral’s decoration was even taken from the Roman ruins of Carthage!
After a long day of sight-seeing, it’s always great to unwind at one of Mdina’s many wine-bars or cafes - one cafe is very famous for its chocolate cake, see if you can find it! ... See MoreSee Less
