The Essential

Malta's former capital, Mdina, built on a rocky outcrop, is one of the gems of the archipelago. It is riddled with narrow lanes hidden behind sturdy ramparts that have been recently and masterfully restored. Mdina is a pedestrian-friendly town (only the locals have cars): start down the main Villegaignon Street, the site of a host of architectural treasures, including the wonderful St Paul's Cathedral and its iconic dome. Bastion Square is another hub, particularly in summertime.
