Mdina, Città Vecchia

Mdina, Malta, 09-01.2012

My first received postcard from Malta, and it's from old capitol of Malta,  Mdina, Città Vecchia. Mdina is a medieval walled town situated on a hill in the centre of the island.Punic remains uncovered beyond the city’s walls suggest the importance of the general region to Malta’s Phoenician settlers. Mdina is commonly called the "Silent City" by natives and visitors. The town is still confined within its walls, and has a population of less than three hundred, but it is contiguous with the village of Rabat, which takes its name from the Arabic word for suburb, and has a population of over 11,000.
