"Malta's former capital" Top 5 Page for this destination Mdina by globetrott

Mdina Travel Guide: 271 reviews and 832 photos

Mdina once used to be the ancient capital of Malta and nowadays it is the old part of Rabat. Mdina is still surrounded by the old fortification-walls and a wide moat at one side and the steep cliffs at the other side.
Mdina was built on a small hill in the centre of the island with an excellent view of all of the island, so enemies approaching could be seen already a long time before they could reach Mdina.
