Malta, M’dina

Visited the north of the island which I much preferred to the south. In particular I really loved M’dina – the old capital pre Valletta. It is pedestrians only and just a great place to wander around and through alleyways. It was deliberately built high up and as far as possible from the ocean so that all marauders could be spotted long before they made it to where people were living. Seems to have worked as the place is pretty much untouched from how it must have looked 500 years ago.

Gets my vote as a must see.
