MDINA Silent City
Mdina, also known as the silent city, its name actually stems from the Arabic word ' medina' which means city. The surrounding village is known as Rabat, also stemming from Arabic and meaning 'suburb'. Mdina was the principal settlements of the Phoenicians about 3000 years ago and was the capital of Malta up until the arrival of the knights of St John in the 1500s. A major tourists attraction, Mdina is internationally recognized as an important UNESCO heritage site and the seat of the Maltese Bishop. The streets are narrow and the houses build high, with many doors having beutiful, omate brass knockers complemented by intricately build balconies. There is a calming feeling as you walk along the narrow streets and passageways of the tiny city, you get the opportunity to take in some of the best Norman and Baroque architecture on the island. Several palaces are situated here and most of them now are private homes.Take a slow walk through the winding streets and visit Vilhena Palace - home to the National Museum of History. Then a gruesome visits to the old dungeons, when scenes of torture and imprisonment are depicted by life size figures in period costume, and let yourself go back in time where life was not so rosy to say the least! Finally take a short walk to an amazing coffee shop, where you can enjoy homemade cheesecakes and cakes, perched on top of Mdina bastions - where panoramic views can be enjoyed by all.
