The city of Mdina has long been called the "Silent City of Malta" due to the fortified walls that confine this medieval town.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Mdina: Ggantija Megalithic Temples (in Ggantija) and Citadel (in Victoria). Next up on the itinerary: find something for the whole family at Popeye Village Malta, delve into the distant past at Mnajdra, explore the striking landscape at Blue Grotto (Il-Hnejja), and steep yourself in history at Mellieha Air Raid Shelter.
