We visited Mdina, the old capital of Malta, during a day trip from Valletta, which was our home base on the island for one week in November 2010.
On this day trip we also explored the steep cliffs near Dingli, the prehistoric cart ruts known as Clapham Junction, the woodlands of the Buskett Gardens and Mdina's former suburb Rabat.
Mdina is situated on a hill in the centre of Malta and can be reached from Valetta by bus in about half an hour. It is known as an ancient walled city, where nowadays only up to 250 people live.
Among the main sights are the St. Paul's Cathedral, the Carmelite Church, the St. Agatha's Chapel as well as the Main and the Greek Gate.
"Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things."
