    Visit the Catacombs of Saint Agatha.
    In comparison with the Catacombs of Saint Paul, the Catacombs of Saint Agatha are decorated with numerous frescos. There is no lighting here, and you're accompanied by a guide with a lamp. Beware very low ceilings! If you're tall, you'll have to bend.

    See the Catacombs of Saint Paul.
    These are underground Christian cemeteries dated from 100-400 A.D. Visiting the Catacombs is free of charge, but tips are appreciated.

    This 3000-year-old city, once...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This 3000-year-old city, once the political centre of Malta, is filled with Norman and baroque buildings and narrow cobblestone streets. Its nickname derives from the many aristocratic Maltese families who still live in town.
    The best-preserved medieval building is the Norman-style Palazzo Falzon, built in 1495. Mdina has a beautiful main piazza, where you'll find the 11th-century Roman Catholic Sicula-Norman Cathedral, one of the few buildings to survive an earthquake in 1693. The cathedral museum houses a collection of Dürer woodcuts. The nearby suburb of Rabat (which translates roughly as 'suburb') has the interesting Museum of Roman Antiquities, which offers exhibits on the island's 1000 years under Roman rule.
