Mdina – Malta’s ancient walled city, crowns a hilltop and is one of the finest examples of an medieval and baroque architecture. The whole town is crumbly and utterly charming. It won’t take you long to explore the place.
The city is still confined within its ancient walls and although a World Heritage site, it is also a living, breathing city with a population of just under 300. Surely everyone knows each other here! Stroll the winding cobbled streets and lose yourself in the honey-coloured architecture, colourful doorways and balconies.
Stop to the smell the flowers.
Mdina is also known as the silent city of Malta.
No wonder. Just don’t wake up the locals.
Enjoy the shady streets and the spectacular panoramic views of the city walls.
Mdina is the most photogenic town in Malta and an ideal spot for a little afternoon wander.
