We visited the dungeons in Mdina as we thought they would be interesting. It was fairly informative and gave a good idea of what people suffered at that time, although I thought they were very small and rather disappointing. It took 5 minutes to pass through. Interesting for a quick visit but the entry price was on the steep side... More

It is very thought provoking place to visit, to think humans were doing this to each other. The child crying went on to long for my liking

Crazy to see what really went on back in these times!! Fantastic history a real must see to truly appreciate what shaped the history of this beautiful place! Although a little creepy, it gives you an appreciation of the justice system we have now days!

Excellent models and an atmosphere has been created using harrowing sounds as well. Lots of boards up in all languages, giving historical and interesting information. Very professionally done and as such is very thought provoking....such barbaric times. In addition they appear to be constantly up dating the attraction as well. You are allowed to take photos, there is one loo... More

My boyfriend really wanted to go here, and for 5 Euros each I thought why not. I was a bit worried about going because things like The London Dungeon are not my cup of tea however it was fine and not as gory as I expected. I was worried there'd be people dressed up ready to scare you but there... More

A very cheap place to visit, with a lot of small things to do. You can see St Paul's Grotto, which is really a religious shrine and has no other real interest. You can go into the catacombs, which were used for burial and then as bomb shelters in WW2. These are very interesting and evocative of what life must... More

I visited with my family, reaching Mdina using the buses from Sliema. It's about an hours journey, including the change of buses in Valletta. It doesn't cost too much, so if you're not hiring a car then it's easily accessible. I have to say, what’s not to like! A reminder of the good ol’ days and all of its associated... More
