Wander the Fortified Walls of Mdina

This fortified city was once the capital before the arrival of the Order of St. John, after which it remained an important—but quiet—noble presence, hence gaining the nickname the “Silent City.” Architecturally, the pedestrian-only city, which can be explored in a few hours, features limestone walls covered in bright bougainvillea, as well as both baroque and medieval facades. In fact, its ornate main gate and moat bridge was featured as King’s Landing in season one, episode three of Game of Thrones (when Catelyn and Rodrik arrive to find out what happened to Bran).
