This is a must see, beautiful place. Cannot believe the people, The Knights, from early days, build this amaizing city. It is named Mdina, the Silent City. We did a scenic walking tour and went to Baccus Restaurant afterwards. Recommended !

This is a lovely place. Horse and trap rides through the narrow streets which open in large squares with many historical and interesting buildings. Very few references to GOT that we saw even though we did recognise some of the town from episodes we had...More

Pretty gateway into Mdina. It can be hard to get a photo if there are a lot of people about. Watch out for horses!

Really stunning entrance to the beautiful old city. We arrived early before the crowds when it was peaceful and I could get a good pic. Mdina is such a pretty place to visit, I’d thoroughly recommend it.

In the days of "The Silent City" you could stroll into Mdina at leisure. Now the volume of traffic in and out has destroyed that pleasure. The gate is still a wonderful site A doorway to an architectural feast of delights, especially at night when...More

Original gate has been walled up at some point and the larger Greek gate took its place. Nice bas-relief and small statuettes on both sides. Worth a closer look especially when exiting the city.
