The settlement of Mdina is thought to be over 4000 years old and the place where St Paul lived after being shipwrecked on Malta in 60 A.D. Its medieval name was 'Citta Notabile' the noble city, but it is now known as the 'Silent City'.

The architecture here is a mixture of Baroque and medieval and every street seems to have a palace or impressive dwelling of some sort. Even now, this is the place where many of the rich and famous of Malta live.

Mdina is known for its ornate door-knockers (yes, really!!) and torches placed beside the doors - replicas of medieval street lights.
