Know More about this tour

Mdina, once the capital city of Malta, has had many names throughout its history, but its medieval name describes it best - Citt Notabile': the noble city. Built on a plateau in the centre of the island, its Baroque cathedral and magnificent bastions dominate the skyline. A stroll through its narrow streets, which have changed little in the last 1,000 years, is a must for any visitor to Malta.

The area occupied by Mdina has been inhabited since at least the Bronze Age. The Phoenicians and Romans established their own settlements here, but the modern name and layout of the city reflect Arab rule, before the Normans firmly established it as the country's capital. Although the construction of Valletta lessened its importance, a strong earthquake in 1693 led to reconstruction, and a revival of the city. Since that time, Mdina has changed very little.

You'll be walking past the most notable sites in Mdina:

Vilhena Palace
St. Agathas Chapel
The Banca Giuratale
The Mdina Cathedral
Palazzo Falzon
The Carmelite Church and Priory
Palazzo Santa Sofia
Greeks Gate

...and much more!
