A stroll around Mdina

Even as one approaches Mdina, very often referred to as the Silent City, one is struck by a sense of awe at the old city’s imposing structure. Mdina is enclosed by fortifications, and since it’s located on top of a hill, it affords spectacular views of the whole island.

The city’s snaking, narrow streets lit by warm orange lights are particularly quiet and hauntingly beautiful at night. We definitely recommend an evening stroll around the city, especially if you want to experience some true peace and quiet. If you visit by day, be sure to visit St Paul’s Cathedral, the Dungeons, and the Natural History Museum.
