The Main Gate is the most important entrance to the fortified town of Mdina. The bridge in front of the Main Gate spans a dry moat which was once digged by Arabs.
The current structure dates back to 1724 when the gate was reconstructed by Grandmaster Manoel Vilhena after the big earthquake in 1693.
The coat of arms on the front of the gate is the emblem of Grandmaster Vilhena.
Mdina's Main Gate can be found at the southern end of the fotified city. It is located more or less opposite to the bus station of Mdina/Rabat.
