The walled city of Mdina, located on a hillside at the centre of Malta was once the Island’s capital.

No visitor can afford to miss Malta’s old capital city, originally called Melita or Civitas, later Notabile or Citta’ Vecchia and now, simply, Mdina a corruption of its ancient Arab name, Medina. This imposing citadel, perched high on a plateau, commands magnificent views over land and to the sea. It is one of the world’s finest examples of a medieval walled city still inhabited. It is surrounded by steep vertical bastions and a dry moat. Its history is as old as that of the island and can be traced back more than 4,000 years.
