Rabat

Historic Sites · Monuments · Caves
Not to be confused with Victoria, formerly known as Rabat, the official Rabat is a town just outside of Mdina on the island of Malta. While the city is quite a bit newer than the foritified Mdina, its fascinating history whispers at every corner. Weathered statues, crosses on rooftops, pictures engraved in the walls, and oversized ancient doors are some of the historical treasures you will find as you walk along. Most tourists here are drawn to the catacombs that characterize this city. An audio-guided tour around them will have you in awe of their construction, details, and versatility. The town also gives you a taste of authentic Maltese life, as citizens are more likely to reside here than the tourist hubs. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Rabat and add them to your vacation plans using our Malta day trip planner.
