Dingli

Dingli is a small village on the west coast of Malta. The magnificent Dingli Cliffs offer a spectacular panoramic view of the Mediterranean Sea. Whilst enjoying a holiday in Malta, visit the Dingli cliffs for the perfect spot to enjoy a picnic whilst watching the sunset with your loved ones. The charming sea and landscape make the place a super romantic spot! It’s also a lot quieter and not as busy as other destinations in Malta.

Another exciting place to visit is the Buskett Gardens, which is very popular for walking and sightseeing. The garden is home to many different types of trees and vineyards. It’s the perfect spot for travel lovers who want to explore and discover the fauna and the flora of the country. Enjoy an evening bike ride while immersing yourself in nature. If admiring historical architecture is your thing, St Mary Magdalene Chapel is a must-see.

Mdina

Malta’s medieval capital Mdina, is also known as ‘The Silent City’ because no cars can pass through its gates. Thanks to its timeless atmosphere and cultural and religious treasures Mdina is a truly magical location. Step back in time with a trip to Mdina, visit at night to witness the beautiful city lamp-lit. With its rich history and culture, it’s no surprise that Mdina is a favourite of visitors and locals. 

 

Mdina, Malta

St. Paul's Cathedral 

According to tradition, Mdina is where the Apostle St. Paul lived after being shipwrecked on the island. Mdina’s medieval name best describes it as ‘The noble city.’ This is because it’s home to many noble families, whom descend from the Norman, Sicilian and Spanish who made Mdina their home in the 12th century. With the narrowing and winding cobbled streets, walking through the city feels like a baroque maze. Wow! What a truly magical adventure! There are many memorable attractions here. When visiting Mdina why not take a traditional horse-drawn carriage around the city? It’s the perfect way to take in the charming architecture and spectacular views. St. Paul’s Cathedral is an impressive landmark visible throughout the city, while the St. Paul’s Cathedral Museum is one of the most outstanding religious museums in Europe. This is definitely worth a visit whist in beautiful Mdina.

Mosta

Visiting Malta should always include a visit to Mosta. Mosta is situated at the heart of Malta and is a home to the third largest unsupported dome in the world! There is a very interesting legend around the RotundaDuring World War II, the town of Mosta was prone to aerial bombardment due to its proximity to the airfield of RAF Ta Qali. On 9 April 1942, the Luftwaffe dropped three bombs on Rotunda, and two of them deflected without exploding. However, one 500kg high explosive bomb pierced the dome and entered the church, where a congregation of more than 300 people were awaiting early evening mass. The bomb bounced across the floor and did not explode, which was interpreted as a miracle by the Maltese. A similar bomb is now displayed in the sacristy at the back of the church.
