We Visit Mdina

The entrance gate to Mdina, the original capital of Malta. It dates to before the 12th Century.

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.

If you enjoyed this, much more information is available in my   book:   Return to Malta   available from Amazon.com

I presently live in Venice Florida but was born on the island of Malta. I have relatives there and visit quite often. I am in the process of writing a travelogue and memoir about my visits and memories of Malta. I would like to use my blog to show the many photos I have taken and the beautiful sights that I have seen in Malta.
