What to see in Mdina
One of its most striking sites is the “Greek Gate” built in the 17 century. This remarkable entrance to the city gets its name from the design which mimics the classical Greek with its columns. Ae you walk through the city you will arrive at the Bastion Square with its impressive views of central Malta. Many visitors stop for a tea or coffee at the Café Fontanella hoping for a seat with the vest view on the terrace. Just next to Mdina is Rabat which is the site of the Christian Catacombs. The legend says that St. Paul was shipwrecked here around 60 AD. There are over 1000 tombs built by the early Christians in this area.
