Also known as The Silent City, Mdina is Malta’s most hauntingly beautiful city. From its elevated position, Mdina towers above the rest of the island and its elegant cathedral dominates the skyline.

Its honey-coloured buildings and shady, curving streets emit serenity and seem to absorb the quiet sounds of daily life.

Seemingly, the modern times have been unable to penetrate the city’s looming bastions and the tiny city remains as it has for centuries.

By the day, the entire city is truly captivating with is magnificent vistas, sense of culture and history, and enchanting architecture. At night, it becomes magical as a hush descends over the lamp-lit streets and, according to Maltese legend, the ghosts of Mdina’s past wander the ancient streets.
