Mdina: A Medieval Maze

Mdina is one of UNESCO World Heritage regions first inhabited in 700 BCE as a military base thanks to its specific location with the view of surrounding areas. It was the capital city until the Knights of Malta came to the city in 1530. Mdina is also called as the Silent City because of its enclosing walls and location that is one of the highest hills in Malta. The most impressive feature of Mdina is to get people into the medieval atmosphere and to arouse a feeling of getting lost because of its long narrow streets. The city will make you feel like walking in a maze.
