Mdina, the Old Capital of Malta

Referred to as “the silent city”, Mdina dates back more than 4000 years with cultural and religious treasures within.

Stepping inside these walls, you’ll be greeted with a serene and timeless atmosphere. Mdina has a small population of about 250 people and is truly a magical town with narrow streets and a very relaxing ambiance.

St. Paul’s Cathedral is a majestic 17th century Cathedral located in the heart of Mdina, where St. Paul converted Publius to Christianity.

My photos of the cathedral’s interior does not do it justice at all! Every inch and corner of the building was covered in such intricate paintings and stonework.

The view of the sunset from Mdina was breathtaking! The residents of this place are one lucky bunch that’s for sure.

If you’re interested in visiting Mdina to take a journey through time, I’d suggest going sometime in the mid afternoon before all the museums and dungeons close their doors to the public. Once in there, do stay for the sunset and have an evening stroll through the town by night.
