Three cities at night, Malta

Three cities at night, Malta

So who guessed I was visiting Mdina, the medieval Capital of Malta during the Ottoman period? Mdina is a walled city mazed with narrow streets not suitable for cars. It has changed little over the centuries. I visited the 2 churches in Mdina and I can only repeat myself, WOW! Mdina is also known for its door knocker, bizarre I agree.

From Mdina I made my way to the Maltese East coast and the town of Dingli and the 280m Dingli cliffs. Great views were not really accessible from land but after a 30 min walk I was able to obtain the view in the above photo.

From Dingli it was back to Valletta and a visit to the armoury of the Grand Palace. Malta has a long history with the temple knights. Usually military history is not my thing but the display quite interesting. The mid afternoon was just spent wandering the streets of Valletta. I just love walking around with no destination in mind.

For dinner I decided to try the traditional Maltese dish of rabbit stewed in a garlic, white wine sauce. Yum!

After dinner I went to the upper Barraka gardens to view the three cities at dusk.
