The whole Old City of Mdina is one big museum. The Phoenicians first founded Mdina during the 6th and 7th centuries BC. After the 1530s and the arrival of Knights, Mdina was the capital city of Malta. Placed on the top of the hill, Mdina is old bastion city placed on the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. There is so much to see there, literally wherever you look. Bastion Square is placed in the northern side of the city on top of the hill and provides a great view to the north side of Malta. Mdina hides many surprises, like Chapel of St. Roque, which is not much unique from the outside, but awesome from the inside. Make sure to visit Mdina ditch gardens, and St. Pauls Cathedral and square, National Museum of Natural History, and Palazzo Falson.
