Mdina is sometimes call The Silent City because of its thick walls which invite quiet.
Mdina was originally the capital of Malta. It traces its history to a time earlier than when St. Paul was shipwrecked in Malta and was said to have lived there. It is a medieval city with narrow streets, a gate that closes every night and is surrounded by a moat. I will touch up on more information about Mdina in future blogs.
