My country #60, yay! 😀 This card comes from Valya who lives in Malta. ❤

Mdina is the old capital of Malta. It is a medieval walled town situated on a hill in the centre of the island. Mdina is commonly called the “Silent City” by natives and visitors. The town is still confined within its walls, and has a population of just over three hundred people. The history of Mdina traces back more than 4000 years. According to tradition it was here that in 60 A.D. that the Apostle St. Paul is said to have lived after being shipwrecked on the Islands. So, somehow logically, one of the most popular sights in Mdina is St. Paul’s Cathedral – a Roman Catholic cathedral, built on the site where governor Publius was reported to have met Saint Paul following his shipwreck off the Maltese coast.
