Travel Back in Time and Experience Mdina in the Medieval Ages


For the 10th year running, Medieval Mdina Festival is back for its two full days of magic at Malta’s silent city of Mdina. The festival in 2018 will be held on the 5th and 6th of May during which there will be re-enactments, spectacular knights in battle, Medieval markets and music, falconry, exhibitions, food and more!


Mdina, Malta’s Old Capital City

Mdina is known to be Malta’s official silent city. It is a fortified city in the Northern Region of the island. It is noted to be one of the highest points in Malta which is why it served as the island’s capital from antiquity to the medieval period. The city is currently still surrounded by fortified walls and it is very close to the village of Rabat.


Its cobbled streets, winding alleys and magnificent architecture is what makes Mdina such a touristic place that is loved by both foreigners and locals alike. This city’s history is portrayed through its vivid architecture, its quiet roads and breath-taking views from above. But what if we told you that you can almost travel back in time and experience Mdina as the Knights saw it?
